Quote from Caleb Silver

"As an investor, and as a human being, I like to live by Bruce Lee's mantra, "Be like water." As Lee famously said, "When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, When you pour water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Be like water, my friend." As people and market participants, we need to be adaptable, but we also need to know when to be forceful, or gentle like a stream.
