A few of my favourite quotes from this book:

Nassim Nicholas Taleb

This book shows you key elements in life that you need to have a clear understanding for you.

What matters isn’t what a person has or doesn’t have; it is what he or she is afraid of losing.

Nassim Nicholas Taleb

An interesting reading to understand what makes a difference when you want to achieve anything.

Bureaucracy is a construction by which a person is conveniently separated from the consequences of his or her actions.

Nassim Nicholas Taleb
