Game Shows

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] (1832–1898)

    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 o’er skip,
    When grief hath mates, and bearing fellowship.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
