Gambling is a sickness, a disease, an addiction, an insanity and a gambler is always a loser in the long run. Gambling is hazardous. It can turn into a dangerous two-way street when we least expect it. Weird things could happen suddenly, and our life could go all to pieces.

There is a very easy way to return from a casino with a small fortune: go there with a large one.- Jack Yelton

There are many harsh lessons to be learned from the gambling experience, but the harshest one of all is the difference between having fun and being smart. By gaming we lose both our time and treasure, two things most precious to the life of man.

I have long understood that losing always comes with the territory when we wander into the gambling business, we could get crippled for life and pain is part of the bargain. Gambling is addictive, the more we gamble, the more we want to do it.

Nobody is always a winner, and anybody who say he is, is either a liar or doesn’t play poker.

We know of many people, especially seniors, who go to the casino two or more times a week. Their obvious excuse is, they are bored. It is very convenient for them because casino bus is waiting for them somewhere. What a foolish way to entertain oneself. It is not hard to understand why casino houses flourish in convenient places like flies.

Gambling is somehow, like we go out for a night and we don't know where we are going to end up the next day. It could work out good or it could be disastrous. It's like the throw of the dice.

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

Winning is a fleeting thing in the gambling business. Today's winners are tomorrow's blinking toads, dumb beasts with no hope, ending up a troublesome life. Countless relationships, lives, marriages and families have been shattered and wrecked by the gambling effects, let us not be one of them.

The majority of casino players leave too much to chance when playing in a casino. To put it bluntly, they don’t have a clue as to how to play. – Henry Tamburin
