“It’s all one game. It’s going to finish when I fold my hand and go up to the big poker game in the sky. If I go away, the game is going to be there tomorrow or next week or next month, whenever it is I come back. And so I’m having a bad time, get up and leave. You’re not going to get the money back that time, go away. Come back when things are better. That’s the only way to look at it.” [Al Alvarez]
