The most successful financial mind of the age, out of his supreme beneficence, opened his doors to anyone who wanted his sage advice.
One upstart investor, who had developed a sense of confidence with recent success in trading, decided to ask the investor something a little “different” from his professed expertise.
“Sir, what is the most valuable thing in the world?”
The sage responded with a quickness that startled the investor, waiting for a pensive response.
“A handful of dirt from the ground.”
Thinking that this was an off-hand comment, the investor asked why this was.
“Because it is priceless.”
