"Buffett takes pride not only in his track record, but also in following his own 'inner scorecard.' He divides the world into people who focus on their own instincts and those who follow the herd. 'I feel like I'm on my back,' says Buffett about his life as an investor, 'and there's the Sistine Chapel, and I'm painting away. I like it when people say, 'Gee, that's a pretty good-looking painting.' But it's my painting, and when somebody says, 'Why don't you use more red instead of blue?' Good-bye. It's my painting. And I don't care what they sell it for. The painting itself will never be finished. That's one of the great things about it.'"
