Famous quotes containing the word gambling:

    There are three roads to ruin; women, gambling and technicians. The most pleasant is with women, the quickest is with gambling, but the surest is with technicians.
    Georges Pompidou (1911–1974)

    Someone once asked me why women don’t gamble as much as men do, and I gave the common-sensical reply that we don’t have as much money. That was a true but incomplete answer. In fact, women’s total instinct for gambling is satisfied by marriage.
    Gloria Steinem (b. 1934)

    At the gambling table, there are no fathers and sons.
    Chinese proverb.
