Bernard Baruch | Biography, World War I, & Facts | Britannica

If you get all the facts, your judgment can be right; if you don’t get all the facts, it can’t be right.”   —   Bernard M. Baruch

(Bernie was one of the richest men in the country, and an advisor to numerous Presidents.  He always knew how to make a buck, including war profiteering, which may be why he donated so much money to worthy causes.  A little like Alfred Nobel in that way. He also thought that the reparations France and England imposed on Germany, following WWI, were too severe.  Someone should’ve listened to him.  Without Bernie though the U.S. may not have been militarily prepared for World War II.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

We can’t cross a bridge until we come to it, but I always like to lay down a pontoon ahead of time.”   —   B. Baruch

(Bernie was THE Man of his day!  A very influential financier, he palled around with Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and even JFK.  Also, one of the better CUNY – City University of New York – colleges, Baruch College, was named for him.  Nice job of keeping the author name on the down-low!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The art of living lies less in eliminating our troubles than in growing with them.”   —   Bernard Baruch

(Great advice!  Trying to eliminate our troubles usually results in a whole new set of troubles.  Better to figure out a way to live with them.  Baruch was a great financier, philanthropist, and political consultant to Presidents Wilson and FDR.  I once dated a girl who went to Baruch College.  That little fact – and a MetroCard – will get you on the NYC subway!  Shout out to Doreen B.!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I think people, by and large, vote for the rhetoric that suits them best.  I gladly voted for “Hope and Change”, with the expectation that Congress would actually work with the President.  It’s just a shame – criminal, in my book – that too many in Congress allow themselves to be bullied, and are more interested in money . . . and getting re-elected, than in actually working for the greater good.  I think that the system is broken.  Whether it is beyond repair is the question that must be answered.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I will never be an old man.  To me, old age is always 15 years older than I am.”   — Bernard Baruch

(39 is not old, is it, kids?  Well, that’s my story and I’m sticking with it!)   — YUR
