For anyone who saw the movie The Color of Money, you will remember that famous quote, “Money won is twice as sweet as money earned.” There is also an old Chinese proverb that tell us, “If you must play, decide upon three things at the start: the rules of the game, the stakes, and the quitting time.”
There is another quote by an unknown author that goes like this, “In the case of an earthquake hitting Las Vegas, be sure to go straight to the Keno lounge, nothing ever gets hit there.” This person evidently never won anything in the Keno lounge. Danny Thomas, old time actor and father of Marlo Thomas once said, “A race track is a place where windows clean people.” He must have been one who bet at the race track.
Another TV actor from long also, Will Rogers offered his quote regarding gambling as, “You never heard of a horse going broke betting on people.” He must have also been one who bet on the horses, or at least he did at one time. Jack Yelton once said, “”There is a very easy way to return form a casino with a small fortune: go there with a large one.”
