„A banker is a fellow who lends you his umbrella when the sun is shining, but wants it back the minute it begins to rain.“

—  Mark Twain

According to R. Ken Rasmussen in The Quotable Mark Twain (1998), this is most probably not Twain's.

„If farming were to be organised like the stock market, a farmer would sell his farm in the morning when it was raining, only to buy it back in the afternoon when the sun came out.“

—  John Maynard Keynes British economist 1883 - 1946

Actual quote: "the Stock Exchange revalues many investments every day and the revaluations give a frequent opportunity to the individual (though not to the community as a whole) to revise his commitments. It is as though a farmer, having tapped his barometer after breakfast, could decide to remove his capital from the farming business between 10 and 11 in the morning and reconsider whether he should return to it later in the week."
