After dropping out of the University of Michigan, Charlie Munger served as a meteorologist in the U.S. Army Air Corps. Without an undergrad degree, he was accepted into Harvard Law School and graduated magna cum laude.
The Omaha native met Warren Buffett in 1959 and the rest is history. Munger, 93, and Buffett, 86, have been business partners for nearly six decades, established themselves as two of America's most successful investors and created billions in corporate and personal wealth.
In "The Tao of Charlie Munger," author David Clark collected timeless Munger quotes on life, business and building wealth. The key to wisdom, according to Buffett's right-hand-man, boils down to one, simple habit: reading.
"In my whole life, I have known no wise people who didn't read all the time — none, zero," says Munger.
