Any time the market is in a correction I like to remind myself how important it is to be patient, remain disciplined and control my emotions. A good way to do this is by revisiting some insightful quotes from some of history’s greatest investors.

Below are 10 of my favorite quotes for investors when going through corrections and bear markets:

-Peter Lynch

#3: Be patient and think long-term…

“Invest for the long haul. Don’t get too greedy and don’t get too scared.”

-Shelby M.C. Davis

#4: A reminder not to sell out of fear…

“A market downturn doesn’t bother us. It is an opportunity to increase our ownership of great companies with great management at good prices.”
