“Rommel, You Magnificent Bastard. I Read Your Book!”

Paul Tudor Jones as quoted in the Foreword to The Alchemy of Finance:

In Patton, my favorite scene is when U.S. General George S. Patton has just spent weeks studying the writing of his German adversary Field Marshall Erwin Rommel and is crushing him in an epic tank battle in Tunisia. Patton, sensing victory as he peers onto the battle field from his command post, growls, “Rommel, you magnificent bastard. I read your book!”

Every day I say the same thing to myself.
