"The third pillar is self-management. You need self-understanding and self-discipline as a trader so you can execute your trading strategy and money management in a timely and consistent fashion. Your market understanding plus your money management multiplied by self-mastery equals your results. Always remember that the 'you factor' is your multiplier."—Ruth Roosevelt (Exceptional Trading: The Mind Game)

"A man cannot be convinced against his own convictions, but he can be talked into a state of uncertainty and indecision, which is even worse, for that means that he cannot trade with confidence and comfort."—Jesse Livermore (Reminiscences of a Stock Operator)
