Bill Gates & Warren Buffet: 25 years of friendship, learning and laughing through stories and building memories!

I enjoyed reading Bill Gates’s recent notes published online to mark the anniversary of his 25th friendship anniversary with Warren Buffet.

Bill Gates said this friendship has changed his life for the better in every imaginable way.

He has learned to learn more and laugh more by telling stories and building memories.

Bill met Warren on July 5, 1991 through his parent’s connections. Warren started the conversation by asking questions.

“These were amazingly good questions that nobody had ever asked,” Bill said describing Warren as “modest” and “funny.”

It was a deep friendship from this very first conversation.

Warren nurtures friendship. This is the most important thing Gates has learned from Buffet over the last 25 years. He’s gifted at investing in people. He makes it fun for them to learn from him.

“Everyone should be lucky enough to have a friend who is as thoughtful and kind as Warren. He goes out of his way to make people feel good about themselves and share his joy about life,” Gates noted.
