Jesse Livermore

The voice of protest, of warning, of appeal is never more
needed than when the clamor of fife and drum, echoed
by the press and too often by the pulpit, is bidding all
men fall in and keep step and obey in silence the
tyrannous word of command. Then, more than ever, it is
the duty of the good citizen not to be silent

— Charles Eliot Norton

All I know is just what I read in the papers, and that’s an alibi for my ignorance
