Famous quotes containing the words game and/or shows:
“In the game of Whist for two, usually called Correspondence, the lady plays what card she likes: the gentleman simply follows suit. If she leads with Queen of Diamonds, however, he may, if he likes, offer the Ace of Hearts: and, if she plays Queen of Hearts, and he happens to have no Heart left, he usually plays Knave of Clubs.”
—Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (18321898)
“When we our betters see bearing our woes,
We scarcely think our miseries our foes.
Who alone suffers, suffers most i the mind,
Leaving free things and happy shows behind.
But then the mind much sufferance doth oer skip,
When grief hath mates, and bearing fellowship.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
