Here are the five things that I have learnt from him:

  1. The brave may not live forever, but the cautious do not live at all.
  2. Business opportunities are like buses; there’s always another one coming.
  3. Most necessary evils are far more evil than necessary.
  4. Take the competition seriously, not yourself.
  5. One thing is certain in business: You and everyone around you will make mistakes.
