Favorite Quote:
I have lived eighty years of life and know nothing for it, but to be resigned and tell myself that flies are born to be devoured by spiders and man by his sorrows--Voltaire

An ace of spades
Two jacks well played
And this round has gone to me

A six and four
My only score
And I admit defeat

Skill with luck
Will win the game
At the end of the day
No one can know
What the cards will deal
