"Worldly wisdom teaches us that it is far better for reputation to fail conventionally than to succeed unconventionally." - John Maynard Keynes
We are ok being lonely and taking an unconventional approach to investing, for that is where we find the greatest long-term success. Although we try to find the occasional situation where the odds in our favor and invest in great companies, we also try to incorporate wisdom from many disciplines. We understand human nature is complex and not wired for long-term investing. As Pascal wisely once said, "All men's miseries derive from not being able to sit in a quiet room alone."
