Quote of the Day
Change your life today. Don't gamble on the future, act now, without delay.
Simone de Beauvoir
Life is a gamble. You can get hurt, but people die in plane crashes, lose their arms and legs in car accidents; people die every day. Same with fighters: some die, some get hurt, some go on. You just don't let yourself believe it will happen to you.
Belief is a wise wager. Granted that faith cannot be proved, what harm will come to you if you gamble on its truth and it proves false? If you gain, you gain all; if you lose, you lose nothing. Wager, then, without hesitation, that He exists.
Falling in love, romance, matters of the heart - when you fall in love, on some biochemical level you know there is a chance it won't work out.

A time will come when a politician who has willfully made war and promoted international dissension will be as sure of the dock and much surer of the noose than a private homicide. It is not reasonable that those who gamble with men's lives should not stake their own.
H. G. Wells

I always feel like 'as long as I'm doin' what I love to do, the money's naturally gonna come.' When you start thinkin' business and you start thinkin' 'What's hot? What's the wave? Who is hot? Let's get at that person,' it becomes a point where you're tryin' to strategize to make money. And that's always a gamble.
I thought it might be fun to set my books in Nevada, which is in the West and still pretty Wild. You can still gamble, carry a loaded pistol, and go into a silver-mine, and they still have saloons with swinging doors, boardwalks, and horses.
I took a gamble to exercise leadership without losing my feminine nature.
It is not reasonable that those who gamble with men's lives should not pay with their own.

I don't really go out much at all. But there are times when I'm like, 'I gotta get out.' Then we go to Vegas, and we'll gamble.
He was a degenerate gambler. That is, a man who gambled simply to gamble and must lose. As a hero who goes to war must die. Show me a gambler and I'll show you a loser, show me a hero and I'll show you a corpse.
If I gamble, I go for the lowest-end blackjack or slots. It's because I don't like to lose!

Gloria Macapagal Arroyo
