Shuffle Quotations

When debts are not paid because they cannot be paid, the best thing to do is not talk about them, and shuffle the cards again.
Camilo Jose Cela

Arnold J. Toynbee

Vampires get the joy of flying around and living forever, werewolves get the joy of animal spirits. But zombies, they're not rich, or aristocratic, they shuffle around. They're a group phenomenon, they're not very fast, they're quite sickly. So what's the pleasure of being one?
Margaret Atwood

Trent Reznor

In any finite region of space, matter can only arrange itself in a finite number of configurations, just as a deck of cards can be arranged in only finitely many different orders. If you shuffle the deck infinitely many times, the card orderings must necessarily repeat.
Brian Greene
