Has fortune dealt you some bad cards. Then let wisdom make you a good gamester.
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.
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.
Nothing is sacred to a gamester.
