Master Tips #5: Paul Samuelson on investing vs. gambling

"There's something in people, you might even call it a bit of gambling instinct...I tell people investing should be dull.  It shouldn't be exciting.  Investing should be more like watching paint dry or watching grass grow.  If you want excitement, take $800 and go to Las Vegas."

- Paul Samuelson, 1970 Nobel Laureate in Economics
