In the most unironic way possible, Carl Icahn’s eponymous website pays homage to the words and wisdom of a master investor.

Just in case you imagine the legendary activist investor made this statement during the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the quote is taken from a 1988 Texaco shareholder meeting. Similar? Maybe. But, no, not quite the same thing.
