It is the duty of the long-term investor to endure great losses with equanimity.
John Maynard Keynes
Every great loss demands that we choose life again. We need to grieve in order to do this. The pain we have not grieved over will always stand between us and life.

Martha Beck
I remember, when I was a little kid, I was good at sports, and I could jump off the high board. And then puberty hit, and suddenly I was looking to boys for direction. I remember that as a great loss.

Chris Brown
