There have been many notable investors who have withstood the test of time. Of those that are still living, Warren Buffett definitely stands out of the crowd. If you had invested $1,000 with him in 1965, the investment would be worth over $6 million today.
Some of those who could be considered in the realm of "founding fathers" of sound investment strategy would include J.P. Morgan, Benjamin Graham (author of the famous "The Intelligent Investor"), and John Templeton.
Others worth mentioning are Peter Lynch and in modern day acclaim, George Soros and Carl Icahn.
Perhaps the best quote that informs smart investing came from Warren Buffet, when he said to "Be Greedy When Others are Fearful, and Fearful When Others are Greedy."
