Buffett says he wants to be remembered as a teacher. Most of the teachers are good , or bad, in just doing the teaching, and repeating the same lessons over and over . Because it’s the only thing they can do. A wonderful teacher, a true teacher is one that I would call a “Maestro”. The Italian word for Master. Because he’s someone that really can do what it teaches. And then he’s so generous and good that is a big talent in passing along the extraordinary talent he has. The talent he nurtured to achieve those wonderful goals that are under your eyes and tell about him.
“Generosity is a precious gift, don’t expect it from cheap people”. It takes a very generous human being to spend time and efforts passing along to other people what he learned. It is an act of generosity only a true successful man can do for free.
And it tells you also about the importance of sharing your success with the others. And that’s a key point for many successful people. Like Jean Paul De Joira likes to write on his motorbikes : “Success without sharing with the others is failure”. Don’t ask yourself why JP signed the “giving pledge”. His wonderful story reminds me of what Miles Davis used to say: “I don’t need words, Music speaks for itself”.
