Nothing defines human beings better than their willingness to do irrational things in the pursuit of phenomenally unlikely payoffs.
Scott Adams

The world is like a reverse casino. In a casino, if you gamble long enough, you're certainly going to lose. But in the real world, where the only thing you're gambling is, say, your time or your embarrassment, then the more stuff you do, the more you give luck a chance to find you.
Scott Adams

Only through curiosity can we discover opportunities, and only through gambling can we take advantage of them.
Clarence Birdseye

Never speculate ... if you have savings, invest them in solid securities, lands, or property. The man who gambles upon the exchanges is in the condition of the man who gambles at the gaming table. He rarely, if ever, makes a permanent success.
Andrew Carnegie
