Quote of the Day
I'm kind of a good girl - and I'm not. I'm a good girl because I really believe in love, integrity, and respect. I'm a bad girl because I like to tease. I know that I have sex appeal in my deck of cards. But I like to get people thinking. That's what the stories in my music do.
Any time women come together with a collective intention, it's a powerful thing. Whether it's sitting down making a quilt, in a kitchen preparing a meal, in a club reading the same book, or around the table playing cards, or planning a birthday party, when women come together with a collective intention, magic happens.
Life is like a game of cards. The hand you are dealt is determinism; the way you play it is free will.
A great social success is a pretty girl who plays her cards as carefully as if she were plain.

Trust everybody, but cut the cards.
Finley Peter Dunne
Life is not a matter of holding good cards, but sometimes, playing a poor hand well.
We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the game.
Last night I stayed up late playing poker with Tarot cards. I got a full house and four people died.
Just because Fate doesn't deal you the right cards, it doesn't mean you should give up. It just means you have to play the cards you get to their maximum potential.
The NSA has built an infrastructure that allows it to intercept almost everything. With this capability, the vast majority of human communications are automatically ingested without targeting.

Being a child that grew up with a single mom back in the '70s, Father's Day to me was always a very uncomfortable time. At school, we would make Father's Day cards for our dads, and I usually mailed one to my dad, and he hardly ever responded.
Fraud is common when you give away billions. Fraud related to Hurricane Katrina spending is estimated to top $2 billion.

Life is not a matter of holding good cards, but of playing a poor hand well.
Robert Louis Stevenson
I didn't plan on being a single mom, but you have to deal with the cards you are dealt the best way you can.

I know some people might think it odd - unworthy even - for me to have written a cookbook, but I make no apologies. The U.S. poet laureate Billy Collins thought I had demeaned myself by writing poetry for Hallmark Cards, but I am the people's poet so I write for the people.

One should always play fairly when one has the winning cards.
A lot of life is dealing with your curse, dealing with the cards you were given that aren't so nice. Does it make you into a monster, or can you temper it in some way, or accept it and go in some other direction?
I like to control everything, and you cannot control everything. You have to at some point say, 'I let go and I'm going to let the cards fall where they fall... For a control freak, it's hard.
