1 Ancient Chinese Proverbs That Can Help You Make Better INVESTING Decisions Today???

Hmm .. from the Cyberspace.

#1 The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The second best time is now

Chinese: 种植一棵供人乘凉的树,最好是在二十年前,但错过了那次机会,最佳的时机便是当下。

For investing 

#1 The best time to invest was last financial crisis. The second best time is next financial crisis. Any time to invest is neither good or bad! Count your luck!


  1. CW,

    I stand corrected since Chinese is my 2nd language afterall...

    But I've never heard of "种植一棵供人乘凉的树,最好是在二十年前,但错过了那次机会,最佳的时机便是当下"???

    After doing my "Trust but Verify" due diligence by googling the above saying, I only found it to be a recent saying use by investment snake oils... If we don't invest now, how they earn fees and/or commissions?

    I've only know this Chinese wisdom about trees: 前人种树,后人乘凉.

    If we google it, its backed up by 5,000 years of Chinese history ;)

    See? Just say its a "Chinese proverb or ancient wisdom" and ang mohs or those weak in Chinese will blindly accept it as "truth".

    Right off the bat, what kind of "investor" are you?

    1. Snake oils are now found largely in investment and personal finance. All sound so wonderful and powerful. Must buy one and try out! Look at integrator sites!

  2. The Ang Moh has thier own favorite sayings or wisdom or classic literature too.


    "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way—in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only."[2]

    Do U know what time is like that in the stock markets?

    Happy investing.
