Did you ever see anybody at a gambling table who cared desperately and who had to win? Did you ever see him win? Not in this universe.
“But this fellow who’s sitting there and he doesn’t care—if he got the money he’d take it out and throw it in a spittoon. And there that fellow sits with the dollars rolling in on him. And he’s getting a higher and higher stack of win.
“But then one day he gets married or something, he’s threatened to lose his job and he says, ‘I’ve always won at gambling. Now I think I’ll go back and play. I’ll make some money.’ He’s done. He goes back and he loses and loses and loses and loses and loses.”
“A man’s errors are his portals of discovery.”
Irish Novelist, James Joyce
