Richard Roeper, critic

I would say, stay the hell away from the party scene.

Mario Puzo, novelist

P. Ordeshook,

I have a notion that gamblers are as happy as most people, being always excited; women, wine, fame, the table, even ambition, sate now and then, but every turn of the card and cast of the dice keeps the gambler alive -- besides one can game ten times longer than one can do any thing else.

Lord Byron, poet

Of all mechanics, of all servile handycrafts-men, a gamester is the vilest. But yet, as many of the quality are of the profession, he is admitted amongst the politest company.

John Gay, poet

Whenever you see a gaming table be sure to know fortune is not there. Rather she is always in the company of industry.

Oliver Goldsmith, poet

All the evidence shows that God was actually quite a gambler, and the universe is a great casino, where dice are thrown, and roulette wheels spin on every occasion. Over a large number of bets, the odds even out and we can makepredictions; that's why casino owners are so rich. But over a very small number of rolls of the dice, the uncertainty principle is very important.

Stephen Hawking, scientist

Sir, I do not call a gamester a dishonest man; but I call him an unsociable man, an unprofitable man. Gaming is a mode of transferring property without producing any intermediate good.

If you play bridge badly you make your partner suffer, but if you play poker badly you make everybody happy.

One of the worst things that can happen to you in life is to win a bet on a horse at an early age.

Danny Mcgoorty,

I recently learned something quite interesting about video games. Many young people have developed incredible hand, eye, and brain coordination in playing these games. The air force believes these kids will be our outstanding pilots should they fly our jets.

Ronald Reagan, president

Nothing is sacred to a gamester.

Bernard Joseph Saurin,

Someone once asked me why women don't gamble as much as men do, and I gave the common-sensical reply that we don't have as much money. That was a true but incomplete answer. In fact, women's total instinct for gambling is satisfied by marriage.

But I am in the gambling business, for good or ill; it is the business I have chosen, and the only governing rule that we all recognize is: always sit close to an exit and never trust a man who doesn't sweat.

Hunter S. Thompson, journalist

No wife can endure a gambling husband; unless he is a steady winner.

Thomas R. Dewar,

Another great evil arising from this desire to be thought rich; or rather, from the desire not to be thought poor, is the destructive thing which has been honored by the name of "speculation"; but which ought to be called Gambling.

William Cobbett, politician

We are already too dependent on gambling revenue. If we continue, we will soon be owned by them.

Donald L. Carcieri, politician

Yes, prudently invested contributions to the Social Security fund may bring greater dividends, but those contributions would also face a greater risk. It would be like gambling. We should not gamble with the investments and the future of the citizens of this land.

Daniel Inouye, politician

The President must stop gambling with taxpayers' money and get the country back on the path of fiscal sanity.

Tom Harkin, politician

In the case of an earthquake hitting Las Vegas, be sure to go straight to the Keno Lounge. Nothing ever gets hit there.


No wife can endure a gambling husband, unless he is a steady winner.

Lord Thomas Dewar,

A dollar picked up in the road is more satisfaction to us than the 99 which we had to work for, and the money won at Faro or in the stock market snuggles into our hearts in the same way.

Mark Twain, author
