Quote of the Day 2

“Before the phone call I had 30 years of retirement savings in a “safe”
fund with a brilliant financial guru. When I put down the phone, my
savings were gone and my genius financial guru, Bernie Madoff, was in
handcuffs.”
and
“Then I realize that, for me, the real suffering is not living without
money; it’s living with this rage. The devastation is horrible, but if
I don’t allow myself to feel this, then I can’t learn what there is to
learn. I will not see, for instance, that I participated in the fraud
by being willing to close my eyes about what Madoff was doing.”
