"Leverage is what causes people trouble in this world. So you never want to be in a position where somebody can pull the rug out from under you. And you also never want to be emotionally in a position where you pull the rug out from under yourself. You don’t want to have other people force you to sell and you don’t want to let your own fears or emotions to cause you to sell at the wrong time." --Warren Buffett (2009)
