Quotes / The Gambler

You've got to know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away
Know when to run
You never count your money
When you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the dealing's done
Kenny Rogers, "The Gambler"

You know I'm born to lose,
And gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like to play it,
I don't wanna live forever!
But apparently I am!
—'"Lemmy Kilmeister'", The Ace of Spades

Stalwarts seeking jobs; sucess, dreams, hopes
In the casino where bartenders, dealers, gamblers gather
"Let's wager everything important to you."

The sound of rollin' dice to me is music in the air,
'Cause I'm a gamblin' boogie man, although I don't play fair!
It's much more fun, I must confess, when lives are on the line,
Not mine, of course; but yours, old boy! Now that'd be just fine.

Entropy stacks your deck. Mind helps you deal it, and Time helps you spot a lucky break. Gambling toys and luck charms focus your intentions, but there're no loaded dice here - just you, your will, and Lady Fortune. Who could ask for anything more?
