Quote Left Often beneath the wave, wide from this ledge The dice of drowned men's bones he saw bequeath An embassy. Quote Right
Quote Left It's like gambling somehow. You go out for a night of drinking and you don't know where your 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. Quote Right
Quote Left Perhaps our supercilious disgust with existence is a cover for a secret disgust with ourselves; we have botched and bungled our lives, and we cast the blame upon the environment or the world, which have no tongues to utter a defense. The mature man accepts the natural limitations of life; he does not expect Providence to be prejudiced in his favor; he does not ask for loaded dice to play the game of life. He knows, with Carlyle, that there is no sense in vilifying the sun because it will not light our cigars. And perhaps, if we are clever enough to help it, the sun will even do that; and this vast neutral cosmos may turn out to be a pleasant place enough if we bring a little sunshine of our own to help it out. In truth, the world is neither with us or against us; it is but raw material in our hands, and can be heaven or hell according to what we are. Quote Right
Quote Left 'You cannot move a dead body whole. First of all you have to dice the body into six pieces and pile it up into a bag. Then you'll need to find a pig farm and starve the pigs for a couple of days. The pigs will be so hungry that the body will look like curry to them. They will go through bone like butter, that means that 40 pigs can digest 80 pounds of fat, that's 2 pounds every minute, hence the expression 'as greedy as a pig''. Quote Right
Quote Left But not the first Illusion, the new earth,The march upon the solitary fire,The casting of the dice of death and birthAgainst a giant, for a blind desire,The stream uncrossed, the promise still untried,The metal sleeping in the mountainside. Quote Right
Quote Left We’ll drink the wine till the cup is dry, and kiss the girls so they’ll not cry, and toss the dice until we fly to dance with Jak o’ the Shadows. We’ll dance all night while the moon runs free, and dandle the lasses upon our knee, and then you’ll ride along with me, to dance with Jak o’ the Shadows. We’ll sing all night, and drink all day, and on the girls we’ll spend our pay, and when it’s gone, then we’ll away, to dance with Jak o’ the Shadows. There’re some delight in ale and wine, and some in girls with ankles fine but my delight, yes, always mine, is to dance with Jak o’ the Shadows. We’ll toss the dice however they fall, and snuggle the girls be they short or tall, then follow young Mat whenever he calls, to dance with Jak o’ the Shadows. Quote Right
Quote Left God does not play dice with the universe: He plays an ineffable game of His own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players [i.e. everybody], to being involved in an obscure and complex variant of poker in a pitch-dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time . Quote Right
Quote Left A throw of the dice will never abolish chance. Quote Right
Quote Left [By the end, the baseball metaphors of the early hearing had given way to gambling analogies. Schumer one-upped Sen. Joseph Biden (D-Del.), who had declared that senators were] rolling the dice with you, Judge. ... This isn't just rolling the dice. It's betting the whole house. Quote Right
Quote Left To thee, fair Freedom! I retire From flattery, cards, and dice, and din:... Quote Right
Quote Left Entrepreneurs are risk takers, willing to roll the dice with their money or reputation on the line in support of an idea or enterprise. They willingly assume responsibility for the success or failure of a venture and are answerable for all its facets. The buck not only stops at their desks, it starts there too. Quote Right
Quote Left I don't drink to get happy or to forget the pain. I drink to stop the voices in my head. Do you know what's so bad about them, they stutter. Ddddddave... Kkkkkkikikill your papapapapaparents!! Quote Right
Quote Left One needn't be a crank to miss the scientific boat. The very paragon of genius, Albert Einstein, couldn't be persuaded to give quantum physics his unreserved endorsement. Here is Einstein's most frequently paraphrased statement of dissatisfaction with the theory: Quantum mechanics is very impressive. But an inner voice tells me that it is not yet the real thing. The theory yields a lot, but it hardly brings us any closer to the secret of the Old One. In any case I am convinced that He doesn't play dice. Quote Right
Quote Left Gambling with cards or dice or stocks is all one thing. It's getting money without giving an equivalent for it. Quote Right
Quote Left A gambler in a lucky streak can't get lucky unless he's shooting dice or doing what he likes best. Quote Right
Quote Left Comus all allows; / Champagne, dice, music or your neighbour's spouse. Quote Right
Quote Left They're rolling a dice and in my view they're going to come up the big losers, ... They think there is some political resonance in this but that's not what I hear. Quote Right
Quote Left The dice of Zeus always fall luckily. Quote Right
Quote Left God not only plays dice, he throws them in the corner where you can't see them. Quote Right
Quote Left When God throws the dice are loaded. Quote Right
Quote Left At any rate, I am convinced that He [God] does not play dice. Quote Right
Quote Left At any rate, I am convinced that He God does not play dice. Quote Right
Quote Left Einstein said God doesn't play dice with the universe, but I don't know--maybe not as a whole, but I think he gets a pretty big kick out of messing in peoples' back yards. Quote Right
Quote Left God does not play dice with the cosmos. Quote Right
Quote Left God's dice always have a lucky roll. Quote Right
Quote Left There isn't any luck that enters into anything, unless it's poker or shooting dice, maybe. There is no luck to merchandising. There is no luck in going out and working from early in the morning to long after dinner. That is not luck, it's work. Quote Right
Quote Left Einstein said that God does not play dice with the universe. He was right, but not in the way he meant. God doesn’t play dice with the universe because the universe doesn’t need him. The craps table is set up and running. Whether or not God put it there is besides the point. Quote Right
Quote Left Quantum mechanics is certainly imposing. But an inner voice tells me that it is not yet the real thing. The theory says a lot, but does not really bring us closer to the secret of the 'Old One.' I, at any rate, am convinced that He is not playing at dice. Quote Right
Quote Left The best throw of the dice is to throw them away. Quote Right
Quote Left Alea Iacta est... (the dice is cast) Quote Right
