“Those people who know how to listen are also people who learn. The moment you stop learning, you die. Age is not the number of years you have been living. Age is the condition of your soul.” – Armen Sarkissian* (Lunch with Financial Times, 6-15-2019)
“Life is always preparing you for something you just never know what.” – Armen Sarkissian
“If you don’t own gold, you know neither history nor economics.” – Ray Dalio, Bridgewater Associates
“For twelve consecutive years, gold was up every single year whether there were inflation fears, deflation fears; strong dollar, weak dollar; political stability, political instability. It didn’t matter – strong oil, weak oil. . . Gold went up for twelve years. . . When gold embarks upon its next move, I believe that you will see that long wave take gold relatively quickly, but it will be measured in years, up to $3000 to $5000 target that I believe is fundamentally justified based on the facts we have today.” – Thomas Kaplan, Electrum Group (Peer to Peer Conversations with David Rubinstein)
