Quotes about gambling

1. Friendship is something whose depth fits human aspirations and fulfills human possibilities. It has heft to it, as a gold-piece does and a gambling chip does not.
- Eugene Kennedy

2. I believe compassion to be one of the few things we can practice that will bring immediate and long-term happiness to our lives.

The kind that sticks.
- Dalai Lama XIV
