It's customary, as well as good manners, to attribute someone else's words when you quote them. I am sorry that my education is not up to yours and so I didn't immediately recognise the quote.

For fellow "n00bs", I will give a reference. According to Investopedia, Warren Buffett said it.

The Dangers Of Over-Diversifying Your Portfolio

According to Warren Buffett: "wide diversification is only required when investors do not understand what they are doing". In other words, if you diversify too much, you might not lose much, but you won't gain much either.
Quoting material out of context is something else done by people who do not know that they are talking about.

I have also paid for some online training in the past but I am still very very skeptical about online vendors.
