HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE ARCHIVE

 
 

Buffett has never talked about being a Stoic during his annual appearances before shareholders, but in 2016 he explained why he "can't imagine anybody any happier" than he is and how it would be "churlish of me to have any kind of complaint." Munger added that he still has "a lot of ignorance left to work on."

 

And in a 2018 CNBC interview, Buffett told Becky Quick that having more money doesn't make you happier. "You will not be way happier if you double your net worth."
