    Dear Students, we are so proud of you! Think of how much you have learned. You are now official Investment Gurus. Go forth into the world with optimism and courage. Speak with authority and confidence about the capital markets and prudent, long-term investing. Be brave! Assuming that capitalism does not fail and the world does not end, investing in high quality businesses over the long-term should make you wealthy and, at the same time, help your fellow citizens of the world.

    Do you remember the perspective from the quote from the very beginning of our time together?

    “It is a gloomy moment in history. Never has the future seemed so dark and incalculable. The United States is beset with racial, industrial and commercial chaos, drifting we know not where. Of our troubles, no one can see the end.” -- Harper's Magazine, 1847

    Let's take a look at a different perspective.

    “It is a fortunate moment in history. Never has the future seemed so bright and promising. The United States is the most racially diverse, industrially strong, and commercially prosperous nation in the history of the world. Of our continued success, no one can see the end.”

    Now who said this? When did they say it? Me! Now! Thank you so very much. All of us at Southwestern College in Chula Vista, California, wish you the best of luck and success in the future. And whatever you do in life, remember:

    Don't Give Up! Never Give Up!
