Amen to that...Holly
... and an unusual man.
In June 2009, I went to Las Vegas with my then fiancee and we got married there. On our last day, we decided to have a go at gambling and cashed up $100 into chips. We lost it all but had a great time loosing it as we had no expectation of winning.Life is like that, enjoy the journey and don't expect any guaranteed outcomes.Smiles and blessings
If a gambler expects to lose I'd be asking how he's rigged the race and who is paying him?
Aha ... self-fulfilling prophecy - I liked this aphorism. ;)
I really liked this one - have no expectations - very Zen!
Even today the bets may change, even those that don't.
Yes. The readiness will win in all. Thank you for visiting my blog. ruma
Isn't this like marrying the woman of your dreams with a blank divorce decree and lawyer's card in your pocket?
The optimist never gambles and will never be found near the track!
I have learned this valuable lesson the hard way...got tired of coming home mad...learn to have no expectations and just have a good time will cure that...funny thing is, the times i am not thinking about it, i usually end up winning a little something anyway :)
If you want to gamble, make sure you can afford to lose it. It's not a way to make money.Hope you and your family are well. :)
One of my favorites so far. A person with no expectations comes away with so much more than another who does.
Hahahahaha, Marty! This really reminds me of one of my sister's favorite sayings! "The key to happiness is to lower your expectations!" And boy are you right on target with this one (as usual, though!). Melinda
What is two gamblers expect to lose?
