Great post Kent.
This has really made me think. I have often made the statement that “He who does not study history is doomed to repeat it”. That is pure genius by Twain on the history rhyming. The more I learn the more I realize how little I do know. I have been reading your blog for a year now and you often make me see things from a side I didn’t even know existed. I do appreciate you posting your thoughts.

Kent @ The Financial Philosopher

Thanks Bill. The Twain quote is humbling to me because the human tendency to expect history to repeat is part of why we miss the rhyme of what is happening now and what may happen tomorrow.

I also appreciate your compliments on the blog and my writing. I am simply passing on thoughts inspired by others. On that note, I like this quote:

"All truly wise thoughts have been thought already thousands of times; but to make them truly ours, we must think them over again honestly, till they take root in our personal experience." Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
