Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “If humans fight the last war, nature fights the next one.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Mathematicians think in symbols, physicists in objects, philosophers in concepts, geometers in images, jurists in constructs, logicians in operators, writers in impressions, and idiots in words.”

Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Difficulty is what wakes up the genius.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Wind extinguishes a candle and energizes fire. Likewise with randomness, uncertainty, chaos: you want to use them, not hide from them. You want to be the fire and wish for the wind.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “This is the tragedy of modernity: as with neurotically overprotective parents, those trying to help are often hurting us the most.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Never trust a journalist unless she’s your mother.”

Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Locke’s definition of a madman: someone “reasoning correctly from erroneous premises.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Suckers think that you cure greed with money, addiction with substances, expert problems with experts, banking with bankers, economics with economists, and debt crises with debt spending.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “The sucker’s trap is when you focus on what you know and what others don’t know, rather than the reverse.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Private equity has absolutely no reason to exist. The private equity holder has all the upside and the banks all the downside.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “A man is honorable in proportion to the personal risks he takes for his opinion – in other words, the amount of downside he is exposed to. To sum him up, Nero believed in erudition, aesthetics, and risk taking – little else.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Contra the prevailing belief, “success” isn’t being on top of a hierarchy, it is standing outside all hierarchies.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Poverty is clearly one source of emotional suffering, but there are others, like loneliness.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “The way to avoid the ills of the narrative fallacy is to favor experimentation over storytelling, experience over history, and clinical knowledge over theories. Certainly.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “To succeed in life requires a total inability to do anything that makes you uncomfortable when you look at yourself in the mirror.”

Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Never take advice from anyone in a tie. They’ll bankrupt you. Don’t ask a general for advice on war, and don’t ask a broker for advice on money.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “In economic life and history more generally, just about everything of consequence comes from black swans; ordinary events have paltry effects in the long term.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “If you take risks and face your fate with dignity, there is nothing you can do that makes you small. If you don’t take risks, there is nothing you can do that makes you grand. Nothing. And when you take risks, insults by half-men, small men, those who don’t risk anything, are similar to barks by non-human animals. You can’t feel insulted by a dog.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “What we do today has nothing to do with capitalism or socialism. It is a crony type of system that transfers money to the coffers of bureaucrats.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “People work out, they stress their body, and their body gets stronger from stress.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “The Arabs have an expression for trenchant prose: no skill to understand it, mastery to write it.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “To become a philosopher, start by walking very slowly.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “The market is like a large movie theater with a small door. And the best way to detect a sucker is to see if his focus is on the size of the theater rather than that of the door.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “This is one of the many reasons that journalism may be the greatest plague we face today – as the world becomes more and more complicated and our minds are trained for more and more simplification.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Curiosity is antifragile, like an addiction, and is magnified by attempts to satisfy it – books have a secret mission and ability to multiply, as everyone who has wall-to-wall bookshelves knows well.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “We cannot truly plan, because we do not understand the future-but this is not necessarily a bad news. We could plan while bearing in mind such limitations. It just takes guts.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “We are quick to forget that just being alive is an extraordinary piece of good luck, a remote event, a chance occurrence of monstrous proportions.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Don’t talk about “progress” in terms of longevity, safety, or comfort before comparing zoo animals to those in the wilderness.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Beware of the person who gives advice, telling you that a certain action on your part is “good for you” while it is also good for him, while the harm to you doesn’t directly affect him.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Avoid taking advice from someone who gives advice for a living, unless there is a penalty for their advice.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “The knowledge we get by tinkering, via trial and error, experience, and the workings of time, in other words, contact with the earth, is vastly superior to that obtained through reasoning, something self-serving institutions have been very busy hiding from us.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Wisdom in the young is as unattractive as frivolity in the elderly.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Books to me are not expanded journal articles, but reading experiences, and the academics who tend to read in order to cite in their writing – rather than read for enjoyment, curiosity, or simply because they like to read – tend to be frustrated when they can’t rapidly scan the text and summarize it in one sentence that connects it to some existing discourse in which they have been involved.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Your reputation is harmed the most by what you say to defend it.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Older people are most beautiful when they have what is lacking in the young: poise, erudition, wisdom, phronesis, and this post-heroic absence of agitation.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “The ethical is always more robust than the legal. Over time, it is the legal that should converge to the ethical, never the reverse.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “Those who think religion is about “belief” don’t understand religion, and don’t understand belief.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “We” are the empirical decision makers who hold that uncertainty is our discipline, and that understanding how to act under conditions of incomplete information is the highest and most urgent human pursuit.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “A squeeze occurs when people have no choice but to do something, and do it right away, regardless of the costs.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “The twentieth century was the bankruptcy of the social utopia; the twenty-first will be that of the technological one.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quote: “When you ask people, ‘What’s the opposite of fragile?,’ they tend to say robust, resilient, adaptable, solid, strong. That’s not it. The opposite of fragile is something that gains from disorder.”
