Poker Quotations

Life, like poker has an element of risk. It shouldn't be avoided. It should be faced.
Edward Norton

Baseball is like a poker game. Nobody wants to quit when he's losing; nobody wants you to quit when you're ahead.
Jackie Robinson

I enjoy going out by myself... always have, always will. I don't have security guards, and, for the most part, I enjoy meeting new people. I see myself as a regular guy who likes playing video games with his nieces and nephews and poker with his family. I don't have an art collection or take exotic vacations. I enjoy being at home.
Vince Vaughn

If you're playing a poker game and you look around the table and and can't tell who the sucker is, it's you.
Paul Newman

Both poker and investing are games of incomplete information. You have a certain set of facts and you are looking for situations where you have an edge, whether the edge is psychological or statistical.
David Einhorn
