Cards quotes by Arthur Golden
#1. Cards decorated with a colorful spray of plum blossoms in the background. Yasuda admired it for a moment before putting it into his shirt pocket. I had the feeling no words we spoke could be as eloquent as this simple interaction, so I bowed to him and went on to the next man. #Quote by Arthur Golden
Cards quotes by Feist
#2. I love storms and how the whole house shakes. When I was a kid, there would be lots of thunder and lightning storms, and they would knock the electricity out. We had this oil lantern that had been in my grandfather's homestead at the turn of the century, before there even was electricity. He'd bring it down off the top shelf, and we'd always play cards. #Quote by Feist
Cards quotes by Lisa St. Aubin De Teran
#3. Their only chance to mix with royalty was while they played Bezique. They never played any other game but this one that had grown out of the French court: it was the game of the cavaliers, a game of waiting between battles. #Quote by Lisa St. Aubin De Teran
Cards quotes by Leif Enger
#4. Let me say something about that word: miracle. For too long it's been used to characterize things or events that, though pleasant, are entirely normal. Peeping chicks at Easter time, spring generally, a clear sunrise after an overcast week
a miracle, people say, as if they've been educated from greeting cards. #Quote by Leif Enger
Cards quotes by Paget Brewster
#5. I like everybody at 'Criminal Minds.' I would like to guest star, but I don't know if that is in the cards. #Quote by Paget Brewster
Cards quotes by Ben Folds
#6. I drink a lot, probably too much. My scene while writing lyrics is always a bottle of scotch and stacks of note cards, pencil and pencil sharpener. I throw around note cards and drink. #Quote by Ben Folds
Cards quotes by Ken Goldstein
#7. Pain has an odd way of expressing itself in the acts of business. No matter how many setbacks a leader might experience, there always seems to be a new opaque watermark of endurance testing, invisibly triggered for erratic combustion in each compounding decision. Every CEO in the world knows this, yet few have the good sense to walk away from the table when their cards are hot. Why win in Act Two when a comeback in Act Three gives you a longer biography? Ego is not so much about immortality as it is about demonstrating stately resistance to nightmarish attacks in public forums. Any good smack to the head is a continuity wake up call, or at least another invitation to be interviewed by Charlie Rose. #Quote by Ken Goldstein
Cards quotes by Elizabeth Warren
#8. It matters whether the government blows tens of billions of dollars on tax loopholes for billionaires or whether that same money is used to lower costs for students who have to borrow money to go to college. It matters whether Wall Street can pocket billions of dollars by cheating people on mortgages and tricking them on credit cards or if there's a cop on the beat to keep them honest. It matters whether the minimum wage is set so low that a full-time worker still lives in poverty or if minimum wage also means a livable wage. When #Quote by Elizabeth Warren
Cards quotes by H. G. Bissinger
#9. Because Cards' fans are the most knowledgeable and loyal in all of baseball, they booed almost reluctantly, polite as booing goes, what would have passes as a standing ovation in Philly. #Quote by H. G. Bissinger
Cards quotes by Judith McNaught
#10. I think," Nick snarled, "that the stupid bastard isn't smart enough to win a poker hand with a deck of marked cards. #Quote by Judith McNaught
Cards quotes by Maria Bamford
#11. My dad actually had business cards made up with my sister's website and my website and all of our information. And he hands them out to people he meets. #Quote by Maria Bamford
Cards quotes by George W. Bush
#12. There's also consumer debt, the credit card debt that burdens many of the working families in America. Yes, we talk about national debt, and we're paying a lot down. But you're fixing to hear me tell you part of the remedy for people who have got a lot of credit card debt is to make sure people get some of their own money back. #Quote by George W. Bush
Cards quotes by Paulo Coelho
#13. Life does not play with marked cards.Winning or losing is part of it. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Cards quotes by John Walter Bratton
#14. A shop bought card saying Get Well Soon. Didn't seem to fit the bill. This hand made card hopes that pretty soon ... You'll be galloping up that hill. #Quote by John Walter Bratton
Cards quotes by Norman Vincent Peale
#15. Just as we may learn from our successes (how to do it) so also can we learn from our mistakes (how not to do it). It just isn't in the cards that anybody should get by forever without making mistakes and perhaps sometimes making costly ones. #Quote by Norman Vincent Peale
Cards quotes by James Patterson
#16. I couldn't leave Total behind."
"Total?" Iggy asked.
"That's what his card said," Angel explained.
"Totally a mutant dog who will probably turn on us and kill us in our sleep," Fang said. #Quote by James Patterson
Cards quotes by Ricky Gervais
#17. My favourite shows of the year are House of Cards, the Scandinavian versions of The Killing and The Bridge, and my guilty pleasure is everything MMA. Ultimate Fighter is amazing. #Quote by Ricky Gervais
Cards quotes by Ron Padgett
#18. It is not easy writing someone a postcard. The size and shape of the card cut you down to size ... #Quote by Ron Padgett
Cards quotes by Jase Robertson
#19. I think one of the reasons my family survived its difficult times and is so close today is because we are always laughing at one another's faults and mistakes, and despite whatever injustices are done, we have a good time doing it. We aren't afraid to poke fun at one another and no one ever takes it personal for long. My brothers and I are highly competitive and world-class trash-talkers, and if you ever walk in while we are playing cards or dominoes--just like our games with Granny and Pa--you probably would think someone is fixing to die.
Our neighbor, who was about my parents' age, came over to our house once looking for my mom. She found my brothers and me playing the card game hearts. She offered to be the fourth. But about midway through the second hand, we looked up and she had tears streaming down her face. She threw her cards in the middle of the table, declared she didn't want to play anymore, and left the house. We were a bit miffed about it and didn't realize until later that our trash talking had led to her emotional exit. Another time, I brought a girl from high school down to my parents' house for supper and cards because she told me she was quite the spades player. Halfway through the game, she was crying hysterically. Her sister later stood nose to nose with me and gave me quite the tongue-lashing. I came to realize that our banter was a bit extreme to people outside of our family. Maybe that is one of the reasons I married a woman who couldn't care les #Quote by Jase Robertson
Cards quotes by Anonymous
#20. In the late 1970s, business cards were just being reintroduced in China. I received one which stated, in English: The responsible person of the department concerned. KAREL KOVANDA Brussels #Quote by Anonymous
Cards quotes by Firoozeh Dumas
#21. Ever since we had arrived in the United States, my classmates kept asking me about magic carpets.
- They don't exist-I always said. I was wrong. Magic carpets do exist. But they are called library cards. #Quote by Firoozeh Dumas
Cards quotes by Suze Orman
#22. Late payments also hurt your FICO score. And never, ever take out a cash advance on your credit card. #Quote by Suze Orman
Cards quotes by Rocky Graziano
#23. It took me nine years to get through the fourth grade. When I got into television commercials, I had to take a crash course in reading. I was 32 years old, and I couldn't read the cue cards. #Quote by Rocky Graziano
Cards quotes by Rachel Sklar
#24. I took a job at a white-shoe NYC law firm, with an office, business cards, and a fat starter paycheck. #Quote by Rachel Sklar
Cards quotes by Munindra Misra
#25. 2.07 WALK OF LIFE
Life but like a cycle that you be riding,
You will fall if you ever stop peddling,
Life not of good cards you be holding,
But those held and how you be playing.
[68] - 4 #Quote by Munindra Misra
Cards quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#26. The pain did not subside, but Ivan Ilyich forced himself to think he was getting better. And he managed to deceive himself as long as nothing upset him. But no sooner did he have a nasty episode with his wife, a setback at work, or a bad hand at cards, than he immediately became acutely aware of his illness. In the past he had been able to cope with such adversities, confident that in no time at all he would set things right, get the upper hand, succeed, have a grand slam. Now every setback knocked the ground out from under him and reduced him to despair. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Cards quotes by Kami Garcia
#27. Gatlin was full of God-fearing Baptists, Methodists, and Pentecostals, but they couldn't resist the lure of the cards, the possibility of changing the course of their own destiny. #Quote by Kami Garcia
Cards quotes by Carrie Jones
#28. Zara, sympathy is just a good excuse to buy greeting cards and make sorry eyes and secretly gloat over how glad you are that you aren't the person whose crap is hanging out for everyone to see. #Quote by Carrie Jones
Cards quotes by Henry Miller
#29. A little later, strolling about the town, I, stopped into a shop near the museum, where they sold souvenirs and post-cards. I looked over the cards leisurely; the ones I liked best were soiled and wrinkled. The man, who spoke French fluently, offered to make the cards presentable. He asked me to wait a few minutes while he ran over to the house and cleaned and ironed them. He said he would make them look like new. I was so dumbfounded that before I could say anything he had disappeared, leaving me in charge of the shop. After a few minutes his wife came in. I thought she looked strange for a Greek woman. After a few words had passed I realized that she was French and she, when she learned that I hailed from Paris, was overjoyed to speak with me. We got along beautifully until she began talking about Greece. She hated Crete, she said. It was too dry, too dusty, too hot, too bare. She missed the beautiful trees of Normandy, the gardens with the high walls, the orchards, and so on. Didn't I agree with her? I said NO, flatly. "Monsieur!" she said, rising up in her pride and dignity, as if I had slapped her in the face.

"I don't miss anything," I said, pressing the point home. "I think this is marvellous. I don't like your gardens with their high walls, I don't like your pretty little orchards and your well-cultivated-fields. I like this …" and I pointed outdobrs to the dusty road on which a sorely-laden donkey was plodding along dejectedly. "But it's not civilized," sh #Quote by Henry Miller
Cards quotes by Michael Hudson
#30. Today, people are having to spend so much of their money, to acquire a house and to get an education that they don't have enough to spend on goods and services, except by running into yet more debt on their credit cards and other borrowings. #Quote by Michael Hudson
Cards quotes by Lauren Oliver
#31. It all boils down to the same thing: are you going to play the cards you got, or are you going to fold? #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Cards quotes by James Gleick
#32. Lorenz saw it differently. Yes, you could change the weather. You could make it do something different from what it would otherwise have done. But if you did, then you would never know what it would otherwise have done. It would be like giving an extra shuffle to an already well-shuffled pack of cards. You know it will change your luck, but you don't know whether for better or worse. #Quote by James Gleick
Cards quotes by R.K. Ryals
#33. Life isn't about getting what we want. It's about turning the crappy cards we're dealt into a winning hand, #Quote by R.K. Ryals
Cards quotes by Penelope Ward
#34. Your happiness is all that matters. You're holding all the cards, Frankie - every single, last one of them. But just be aware that I have no issue with showing you exactly how much I want you right now." He moved in closer, to the point where I could feel the heat from his body." The next time you ask me to kiss you, I'm going to fucking kiss you… I'm not gonna lie to you about my feelings. I'm not going to hide the fact that I want to make love to you more than anything. #Quote by Penelope Ward
Cards quotes by Michel Houellebecq
#35. Life sometimes offers you a chance, he thought, but when you are too cowardly or too indecisive to seize it life takes the cards away; there is a moment for doing things and entering a possible happiness, and this moment lasts a few days, sometimes a few weeks or even a few months, but it happens once and one time only, and if you want to return to it later it's quite simply impossible. There's no more place for enthusiasm, belief, and faith, and there remains just gentle resignation, a sad and reciprocal pity, the useless but correct sensation that something could have happened, that you just simply showed yourself unworthy of this gift you had been offered. #Quote by Michel Houellebecq
Cards quotes by Jess Walter
#36. I have this theory, that this will be the only city that future archaeologists find, Las Vegas. The dry climate will preserve it all and teams of scientists in the year 5000 will carefully sweep and scrape away the sand to find pyramids and castles and replicas of the Eiffel Tower and the New York skyline and stripper poles and snapper cards and these future archaeologists will re-create our entire culture based solely on this one shallow and cynical little shithole. We can complain all we want that this city doesn't represent us. We can say, Yes, but I hated Las Vegas. Or I only went there once. Well, I'm sure not all Romans reveled in the torture-fests at the Colosseum either, but there it is. #Quote by Jess Walter
Cards quotes by Peter Welch
#37. Swipe fees have increased steadily since the introduction of debit cards 20 years ago, when there were no swipe fees at all. Merchants can't negotiate or control them. They've tried, but they have no leverage against the big banks and issuers. So they get ignored. #Quote by Peter Welch
Cards quotes by Donald Hall
#38. IT IS SENSIBLE of me to be aware that I will die one of these days. I will not pass away. Every day millions of people pass away - in obituaries, death notices, cards of consolation, e-mails to the corpse's friends - but people don't die. Sometimes they rest in peace, quit this world, go the way of all flesh, depart, give up the ghost, breathe a last breath, join their dear ones in heaven, meet their Maker, ascend to a better place, succumb surrounded by family, return to the Lord, go home, cross over, or leave this world. Whatever the fatuous phrase, death usually happens peacefully (asleep) or after a courageous struggle (cancer). Sometimes women lose their husbands. (Where the hell did I put him?) Some expressions are less common in print: push up the daisies, kick the bucket, croak, buy the farm, cash out. All euphemisms conceal how we gasp and choke turning blue. #Quote by Donald Hall
Cards quotes by Mitchell Reiss
#39. You have to play the cards you are dealt and if it has made it harder, it doesn't matter, you still have to get the deal done. #Quote by Mitchell Reiss
Cards quotes by Patti Callahan Henry
#40. I know this about imagination: It needs a place to go. If I don't work at my cards and images and letterpress, if I don't touch the cut metal and carved wood fonts and imagine different patterns as I place letters next to others in a new way, my ideas will turn inward. #Quote by Patti Callahan Henry
Cards quotes by Benjamin Bayani
#41. Life may deal you a bad hand or take away a good hand you were already dealt. The way you play the hand is how your life is defined. Just like in poker you can end up winning no matter how bad the cards are you have. #Quote by Benjamin Bayani
Cards quotes by Edmund White
#42. They're drunk now," Guy said, "and optimistic, but they will soon be squabbling over household expenses and hoping they'll find love later in the Meat Rack. They'll be arguing. 'Why did you buy that expensive leg of lamb?' And they become especially cross at the beginning of September when they realise the season is over and they've danced their tushes off and fucked a lot in the bushes, but, hey, they haven't bagged a beau for the winter and they've maxed out their credit cards. #Quote by Edmund White
Cards quotes by Charles Duhigg
#43. Typically, people who exercise, start eating better and becoming more productive at work. They smoke less and show more patience with colleagues and family. They use their credit cards less frequently and say they feel less stressed. Exercise is a keystone habit that triggers widespread change. #Quote by Charles Duhigg
Cards quotes by Sachin Tendulkar
#44. I really like Iceland. One of the nicest things about it is that I hardly ever had to reach for my credit card. There's practically nothing there to go shopping for. #Quote by Sachin Tendulkar
Cards quotes by T.J. Klune
#45. It started when I was a kid. I would pout and people would give me things like burritos or baseball cards. Then I got older and people would try and give me sex instead, and I just wanted another burrito. #Quote by T.J. Klune
Cards quotes by Gwendolyn Womack
#46. Always remember the answers come not from the rock, the teacup, the shell, or the cards. The answers come from you. #Quote by Gwendolyn Womack
Cards quotes by Casey Renee Kiser
#47. I hear they make greeting cards now
to thank your therapist ... for NOTHING #Quote by Casey Renee Kiser
Cards quotes by Bill Maher
#48. Obama is huge in the polls these days. His popularity is soaring. Even conservatives are coming around. 30 percent of them now believe Obama deserves a Green Card. #Quote by Bill Maher
Cards quotes by Elle Lothlorien
#49. As you know, the International Poker Tour, by its own admission, knows very little about poker games, one of which ended tragically last week when an IPT-sanctioned tournament aboard a yacht in Australia accidentally used tarot cards instead of playing cards. That's right, it's true! Apparently no one noticed until someone laid down a full house and the dealer died. #Quote by Elle Lothlorien
Cards quotes by William S. Burroughs
#50. Listen to my last words anywhere. Listen to my last words any world. Listen all you boards syndicates and governments of the earth. And you powers behind what filth consummated in what lavatory to take what is not yours. To sell the ground from unborn feet forever -
"Don't let them see us. Don't tell them what we are doing -"
Are these the words of the all-powerful boards and syndicates of the earth?
"For God's sake don't let that Coca-Cola thing out - "
"Not The Cancer Deal with The Venusians - "
"Not The Green Deal - Don't show them that - "
"Not The Orgasm Death - "
"Not the ovens - "
Listen: I call you all. Show your cards all players. Pay it all pay it all pay it all back. Play it all pay it all play it all back. For all to see. In Times Square. In Picadilly.
"Premature. Premature. Give us a little more time."
Time for what? More lies? Premature? Premature for who? I say to all these words are not premature. These words may be too late. Minutes to go. Minutes to foe goal -
"Top Secret - Classified - For The Board - The Elite - The Initiates -
Are these the words of the all-powerful boards and syndicates of the earth? These are the words of liars cowards collaborators traitors. Liars who want time for more lies. Cowards who can not face your "dogs" your "gooks" your "errand boys" your "human animals" with the truth. Collaborators with Insect People with Vegetable People. With any people anywhere who offer you a b #Quote by William S. Burroughs
Cards quotes by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
#51. They had parted as boys, and now life presented one of them with a fugitive and the other with a dying man. Both wondered whether this was due to the cards they'd been dealt or to the way they had played them. #Quote by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Cards quotes by Samuel Johnson
#52. Being married to those sleepy-souled women is just like playing at cards for nothing: no passion is excited and the time is filled up. I do not, however, envy a fellow one of those honeysuckle wives for my part, as they are but creepers at best and commonly destroy the tree they so tenderly cling about. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Cards quotes by David Lynch
#53. It's a simple thing he [Frank Daniel] taught me. If you want to make a feature film, you get ideas for 70 scenes. Put them on 3-by-5 cards. As soon as you have 70, you have a feature film. #Quote by David Lynch
Cards quotes by Lee Child
#54. The guy on the left shrugged and raised up an inch off his chair and dug in his back pants pocket. The other guy did the same. Reacher watched. Safe enough. No one kept a weapon in his back pants pocket. Uncomfortable. Not readily accessible. The guys came out with two IDs each. Plastic, the size of credit cards. But not. They were national identity cards, and driver's licenses. Both had Bundesrepublik Deutschland at the top. Germany. The Federal Republic. The photographs were right. The guy on the left was named Bernd Durnberger, and the guy on the right was named Klaus Augenthaler. Reacher #Quote by Lee Child
Cards quotes by Craig R. Barrett
#55. Innovate, integrate, innovate, integrate, that's the way the industry works, ... Graphics was a stand-alone graphics card; then it's going to be a stand-alone graphics chip; and then part of that's going to get integrated into the main CPU. #Quote by Craig R. Barrett
Cards quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#56. Cribbage, n. A substitute for conversation among those to whom nature has denied ideas. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Cards quotes by Megan Hart
#57. I looked at the cards in my hand, the queen of hearts nestled between the king of clubs and the king of spades. No wonder she was smiling. #Quote by Megan Hart
Cards quotes by Omar Sharif
#58. I don't think I could live without a deck of cards in my hands. #Quote by Omar Sharif
Cards quotes by David C. Coates
#59. Meanwhile, some people are dying of sad laughter at the absurdity of man, who kills so easily and so violently, and once a year sends out cards praying for "Peace on Earth." #Quote by David C. Coates
Cards quotes by Erica Ridley
#60. She knew scotch from whiskey, had no trouble counting markers, and almost certainly dealt her cards from the bottom of the deck. She was absolutely shameless. He hadn't had this much fun in years. #Quote by Erica Ridley
Cards quotes by Richard Rodney Bennett
#61. I wanted to write music, and cook, and play cards, and have a nice time. #Quote by Richard Rodney Bennett
Cards quotes by Jeffrey Zeldman
#62. Advertisers don't want to be ignored, and they are drunk on our data, which is what Google and other large networks are really selling. The ads are almost a by-product; what companies really want to know is what antiperspirant a woman of 25-34 is most likely to purchase after watching 'House of Cards.' #Quote by Jeffrey Zeldman
Cards quotes by Richard Paul Evans
#63. Life is a house of cards, balanced on a tetter-totter,
precariously perched on a roller coaster.
The only thing that should surprise us about our surprises is that we are surprised by them.
Beth Cardall's Diary #Quote by Richard Paul Evans
Cards quotes by Pete Seeger
#64. I always knew that sooner or later there would come somebody like Woody Guthrie who could make a great song every week. Dylan certainly had a social agenda, but he was such a good poet that most of his attempts were head and shoulders above things that I and others were trying to do ... If I had an address, I'd send him a birthday card saying, 'keep on going.' #Quote by Pete Seeger
Cards quotes by Dave Ramsey
#65. Visa's Zero Liability policy covers all Visa credit - and debit-card transactions processed over the Visa network. Visa extends the same protections and benefits to its debit cards as it does to credit cards - including the ability for credit-card issuers to resolve merchant disputes on the cardholder's behalf if goods were defective or weren't received, you were overcharged, or for other reasons. #Quote by Dave Ramsey
Cards quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#66. Never look back. You can't change what you've done. You can only change what you're going to do. Pain is always all around us. It's easy to become blind to it. But imagine all the times in your life when you were hurting and going through shit, if just one person had looked over at you and instead of kicking you while you were down, had said, 'It's okay. You're not a bad person. It's just a bad turn of the cards. You'll get through it.' Can you imagine what an incredible world this would be? #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Cards quotes by David Levithan
#67. Danger comes in many forms, I suppose. For some people, it might be jumping off a bridge or climbing impossible moutains. For others, it could be a tawdry love affair or telling off a mean-looking bus driver because he doesn't like to stop for noisy teenagers. It could be cheating at cards or eating a peanut even though you're allergic. For me, danger might be getting out from the protective cloak of my family and venturing into the world more of my own, even though I don't know what- or who- awaits me. #Quote by David Levithan
Cards quotes by Charles Duhigg
#68. People who start habitually exercising tend on average to eat better. They also tend to use their credit cards less and procrastinate less. #Quote by Charles Duhigg
Cards quotes by Mikhail Bulgakov
#69. My humble ... I don't drink ... '
'A shame! What about a game of dice, then? Or do have some other favourite game? Dominoes? Cards?
'I don't play games,' the already weary barman responded.
'Altogether bad,' the host concluded. 'As you will, but there's something noce nice hidden in men who avoid wine, games, the society of charming women, table talk. Such people are either gravely ill or secretly hate everybody around them. True, there may be exceptions. Among persons sitting down with me at the banqueting table, there have been on occasion some extraordinary scoundrels! Chapter 18 #Quote by Mikhail Bulgakov
Cards quotes by Gina Damico
#70. She wished she had a set of greeting cards at the ready, but Hallmark probably didn't make any that said Thank you for giving up your life so that me and my friends could escape! It was SO appreciated. XOXO! #Quote by Gina Damico
Cards quotes by Wendy Leigh
#71. For as much as Hillary Clinton might hate admitting this about Monica Lewinisky, Eleanor Roosevelt about Missy Le Hand, Queen Alexandra about Lillie Langtry, Lady Nelson about Emma Hamilton, or Jackie about Marilyn, the reality is that despite their intrinsic animosity toward each other, on a a deep level, the wife and the mistress generally have far more in common than they might care to admit and could, had fate dealt them different cards, even been true friends. #Quote by Wendy Leigh
Cards quotes by Mark Doty
#72. To choose to live with a dog is to agree to participate in a long process of interpretation, a mutual agreement though the human being holds most of the cards. #Quote by Mark Doty
Cards quotes by James Laxer
#73. Women should never carry purses in the Metro or on the street in Paris. Unless the bag is purely for show, that is. Money, credit cards and ID should never be put in a purse. #Quote by James Laxer
Cards quotes by Kristin Hannah
#74. I'm so lucky to have you, Leni," Mama said, trying to organize her cards with one hand.

"We're ateam," Leni said. "Peas in a pod."

"Two of a kind."

Words they said all the time to each other; words that felt a little hollow now. Maybe even sad. #Quote by Kristin Hannah
Cards quotes by Sebastian Barry
#75. I'll keep in touch, says Lige, ain't going to let you go. This makes John Coke very quiet. John is a tall man and thin and maybe he don't have much painted on his face. He likes to make his decisions and then do a thing. He has my back and he wants the best world for Winona and he don't neglect his pals. When Lige Magan intimates his seeming love for him, John Cole does show something on his face though. Maybe remembers the old sick days when John Cole couldn't move a muscle and that Lige danced attendance. Why should a man help another man? No need, the world don't care about that. The world is just a passing parade of cruel moments and long drear stretches where nothing is going on but the chicory drinking and whiskey and cards. No requirement for nothing else tucked in there. We're strange people, soldiers stuck out in wars. We ain't saying no laws in Washington. We ain't walking on yon great lawns. Storms kill us, and battles, and the earth closes over and no one need say a word and I don't believe we mind. Happy to breathe because we seen terror and horror and then for a while they ain't in dominion. Bibles weren't wrote for us nor any books. We ain't maybe what people do call human since we ain't partaking in the bread of heaven. But if God was trying to make an excuse for us He might point at that strange love between us. Like when you fumbling about in the darkness and you light a lamp and the light comes up and rescue things. Objects in a room and the face of the man #Quote by Sebastian Barry
Cards quotes by Richard Thaler
#76. Credit cards have been extremely profitable to banks. They're profitable not from the fees they collect from the retailers that use the credit cards, that pays the bills, but the real profits come from the interest payments and the charges to users that are unexpected. #Quote by Richard Thaler
Cards quotes by Pat Cadigan
#77. Most people who are on the inside of a technology have no idea what it's like to look at from an end user's point of view. This is why they have focus groups. I'm really familiar with this because I worked 10 years for Hallmark Cards in the U.S. #Quote by Pat Cadigan
Cards quotes by Pooja Garg
#78. Fold or Make them fold. Don't show all your cards in each game. #Quote by Pooja Garg
Cards quotes by Baltasar Gracian
#79. The best skill at cards is knowing when to discard. #Quote by Baltasar Gracian
Cards quotes by Alexa Von Tobel
#80. There are many random, unprotected sites online that appear safe to use and are ready to accept credit card information. You wouldn't give a stranger off the street your credit card information, so be extra cautious about who you are sharing it with online. #Quote by Alexa Von Tobel
Cards quotes by Lemony Snicket
#81. They did not hop, even though the man had asked them to "hop in," because hopping is something done in the cheerful moments of one's life. A plumber might hop, for instance, if she finally fixed a particularly difficult leak in someone's shower. A sculptor would hop if his sculpture of four basset hounds playing cards was finally finished. And I would hop like nobody has ever hopped before, if I could somehow go back to that terrible Thursday, and stop Beatrice from attending that afternoon tea where she met Esmé Squalor for the first time.
But Violet, Klaus and Sunny did not hop, because they were not plumbers fixing leaks, or sculptors finishing works of art, or authors magically erasing a series of unfortunate events. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Cards quotes by Ingeborg Bachmann
#82. Now the journey is ending,
the wind is losing heart.
Into your hands it's falling,
a rickety house of cards.

The cards are backed with pictures
displaying all the world.
You've stacked up all the images
and shuffled them with words.

And how profound the playing
that once again begins!
Stay, the card you're drawing
is the only world you'll win. #Quote by Ingeborg Bachmann
Cards quotes by Louise Walters
#83. I find things hidden in books: dried flowers, locks of hair, tickets, labels, receipt, invoices, photographs, postcards, all manner of cards. I find letters, unpublished works by the ordinary, the anguished, the illiterate. Clumsily written or eloquent, they are love letters, everyday letters, secret letters and mundane letters talking about fruit and babies and tennis matches, from people signing themselves as Majorie or Jean....I can't bring myself to dispose of these snippets and snapshots of lives that once meant (or still do mean) so much. #Quote by Louise Walters
Cards quotes by Terry Pratchett
Cards quotes by C.S. Pacat
#85. All right. Give me some coin. I want to play that man at cards.'
Laurent rose, leaning his weight against the table. Damen reached for the purse, then paused.
'Aren't you supposed to earn gifts with service?'
Laurent said, 'Is there something you want?'
His voice was sinuous with promise; his gaze was steady as a cat's. #Quote by C.S. Pacat
Cards quotes by Doyle Brunson
#86. Show me your eyes and you may as well show me your cards. #Quote by Doyle Brunson
Cards quotes by J.D. Salinger
#87. The cards are stacked (quite properly, I imagine) against all professional aesthetes, and no doubt we all deserve the dark, wordy, academic deaths we all sooner or later die. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
Cards quotes by Miles Kington
#88. So far as good writing goes, the use of the exclamation mark is a sign of failure. It is the literary equivalent of a man holding up a card reading LAUGHTER to a studio audience. #Quote by Miles Kington
Cards quotes by Patti Smith
#89. Spanish pilgrims travel on Camino de Santiago from monastery to monastery, collecting small medals to attach to their rosary as proof of their steps. I have stacks of Polaroids, each marking my own, that I sometimes spread out like tarots or baseball cards of an imagined celestial team. #Quote by Patti Smith
Cards quotes by Aleister Crowley
#90. Sex is, directly or indirectly, the most powerful weapon in the armoury of the Magician; and precisely because there is no moral guide, it is indescribably dangerous. I have given a great many hints, especially in Magick , and The Book of Thoth - some of the cards are almost blatantly revealing; so I have been rapped rather severely over the knuckles for giving children matches for playthings. My excuse has been that they have already got the matches, that my explanations have been directed to add conscious precautions to the existing automatic safeguards. #Quote by Aleister Crowley
Cards quotes by Dani Shapiro
#91. Years vanish. Months collapse. Time is like a tall building made of playing cards. It seems orderly until a strong gust of wind comes along and blows the whole thing skyward. Imagine it: an entire deck of cards soaring like a flock of birds. #Quote by Dani Shapiro
Cards quotes by Rachel Pollack
#92. The ancients could communicate with the gods in two ways. First, it was (and is) possible to go into a trance and visit the gods in their celestial retreats, as the great shamans have always done. More easily, and less dangerously, they could let the gods speak through code, that is, divination, using dice, entrails, bird patterns, yarrow sticks, cards. #Quote by Rachel Pollack
Cards quotes by Jean Chatzky
#93. Most credit cards provide some sort of protection against a defective purchase, and with gold or platinum cards, you'll often get double the manufacturer's warranty. You're also not immediately out your own money if something goes wrong. #Quote by Jean Chatzky
Cards quotes by Christopher Parker
#94. Procrastination is like a credit card: it's a lot of fun until you get the bill. #Quote by Christopher Parker
Cards quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#95. Some of my Arcanum bunkmates taught me a card game called dogs-breath. I returned the favor by giving an impromptu lesson in psychology, probability, and manual dexterity. I won almost two whole talents before they stopped inviting me back to their games. #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Cards quotes by Yanko Tsvetkov

Cards quotes by Wes Craven
#97. A lot of life is dealing with your curse, dealing with the cards you were given that aren't so nice. Does it make you into a monster, or can you temper it in some way, or accept it and go in some other direction? #Quote by Wes Craven
Cards quotes by William C. Brown
#98. Examples of human stupidity. Blasphemy in Pakistan can now include spelling errors by children or throwing away a card bearing the name "Muhammad". #Quote by William C. Brown
Cards quotes by Ann Romney

Cards quotes by John D. MacDonald
#100. If the cards are stacked against you, reshuffle the deck. #Quote by John D. MacDonald
Cards quotes by Seth Shostak
#101. Sending greeting cards to aliens is hardly a new idea. In 2005, Craigslist solicited messages for broadcast to space by a transmitter in Florida, and in 2008, NASA beamed a Beatles song to the North Star (Polaris), on the assumption that any putative Polarians would appreciate the Fab Four's 1960s-genre compositions. #Quote by Seth Shostak

Cards quotes by Carrie Vaughn
#103. I think we are here to make the world a better place then we found it. I think we do not always deserve the cards that we are dealt-good or bad. But we are judged by how we play the cards we are dealt. Those of us with a bum deal that makes it harder to do good-we just have to work a little more is all. There is no destiny. There is just muddling through without doing too much damage.
Kitty Norville #Quote by Carrie Vaughn

In my ageing wallet,
The unimportant stuff

#107. President Bush left for Canada today to attend a trade summit. Reportedly, the trade summit got off to an awkward start when the president pulled out his baseball cards. #Quote by Conan O'Brien
Cards quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#108. He's right, you know. Kaz shouldn't send you to do his dirty work."
"It's all dirty work."
"But we do it just the same," he said with a sigh.
"You look exhausted. Will you sleep at all tonight?"
Jesper just winked. "Not while the cards are hot. Stay and play a bit. Kaz will stake you."
"Really, Jesper?" she'd said, pulling up her hood. "If I want to watch men dig holes to fall into, I'll find myself a cemetery."
"Come on, Inej," he'd called after her as she passed through the big double doors onto the street. "You're good luck!"
Saints, she'd thought, if he believes that, he really must be desperate. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Cards quotes by Robin Wright
#109. With 'House of Cards,' you really get the heart and the meat of drama - and it's a thriller! #Quote by Robin Wright
Cards quotes by Jerry Robinson
#110. So, I'm thinking of a name for a villain that has a sense of humor. I thought of 'The Joker' as a name, and as soon as I thought that, I associate it with the playing card, as my family had a tradition of champion playing; my brother was a contract champion bridge player. There were always cards around the house. #Quote by Jerry Robinson
Cards quotes by Laura Marling
#111. I am quite competitive. In stupid things like card games. #Quote by Laura Marling
Cards quotes by Tony Kushner
#112. PRIOR: Why does everyone here play cards?
RABBI CHEMELWITZ: Cards is strategy but mostly a game of chance. In Heaven, everything is known. To the Great Questions are lying about here like yesterday's newspaper all the answers. So from what comes the pleasures of Paradise? Indeterminacy! Because mister, with the Angels, may their names be always worshipped and adored, it's all gloom and doom and give up already. But still is there Accident, in this pack of playing cards, still is there the Unknown, the Future. You understand me? It ain't all so much mechanical as they think. #Quote by Tony Kushner
Cards quotes by Emmett Shear
#113. Sales is this cure all for this problem. Get people to give you their credit card and I guarantee you they're actually interested. #Quote by Emmett Shear
Cards quotes by Jessica Pennington
#114. That's very romantic. You should write greeting cards. They'd say really poignant things, like 'I think you're better than a stick in the eye' and 'Will you maybe be my valentine if no one else is available? #Quote by Jessica Pennington
Cards quotes by Derren Brown
#115. When [the magician] clicks his fingers and cards change to the four aces, we know we have experienced sleight of hand. Real magic would not be quite that quick and easy. Real magic would take investment. Real magic would draw you in, and make you nervous. #Quote by Derren Brown
Cards quotes by Katherine Ewell
#116. There is no escape for me now, I know. Everything is over. I had my run. I was a murderer, a beautiful one, but I lived in a house of cards all my life and now it's all coming back to punish me, and there is no escape. #Quote by Katherine Ewell

Cards quotes by Timothy Pina
#118. No matter what type of cards life deals you ... always try to smile and be happy! #Quote by Timothy Pina
Cards quotes by Olivia Williams
#119. My skin may have wrinkles but it's because I'm smiling so much. That might sound like some terrible American greetings card, but I feel it's immoral for me to castigate my body for getting older, when it does everything I ask of it. #Quote by Olivia Williams
Cards quotes by Meg Jay
#120. Marriage is one of our most defining moments because so much is wrapped up in it. If building a career is like spending twelve hours at the blackjack table - seeing the cards as you make your decisions, playing each hand with current winnings in mind, having a new opportunity to take a chance or play it safe with every card dealt - then choosing a mate is like walking over to the roulette wheel and putting all your chips on red 32. #Quote by Meg Jay
Cards quotes by Michael R. Burch
#121. Every political card played by Jeb Bush has been Trumped; every political note played by The Donald has been Trumpeted. #Quote by Michael R. Burch
Cards quotes by Bill Cosby
#122. I did not want to turn to playing golf because golf is about as much exercise as shuffling cards. #Quote by Bill Cosby
Cards quotes by Lee Grant
#123. I saw Warren's eyes attach themselves to something in the distance. I turned around and saw in the next room, the dining room, Dolly Parton, quietly sitting at the table, alone, scribbling on a pad. In an instant, I could feel myself dropped as this new yummy dish was making Warren's mouth water. He actually licked his lips as he left me on the couch and sat down next to her at the table. I followed him like a jilted wife, jealous, clumsy. I needn't have bothered; Dolly was immune. Warren tried the whole deck of cards. Dolly concentrated on her numbers, adding, subtracting, and smiling adorably at his attempts. Watching her, I couldn't blame him for trying. It was 1975. Dolly was all cream and roses, just astonishing and nice. #Quote by Lee Grant
Cards quotes by Hank Williams III
#124. And I flirted with the devil and he dealt me a card. He told me that you will never win. So I sold my soul to the devil. I never thought it could be this bad. And I got the devil takin' me away #Quote by Hank Williams III
Cards quotes by Peter Ganick
#125. ...a totally dried noose for one is to another an integrated text adept at the cards that ruin whimsy... #Quote by Peter Ganick
Cards quotes by Melissa Cynova
#126. In every deck, the Fool is in a precarious position. Think of all of the idioms we have for taking chances. "Going out on a limb." "Winging it." "Break a leg." "Going for broke." These all sound really painful, but what they're about is deciding that being still is not for you. When you see this in a reading, you'll know it's time to jump. #Quote by Melissa Cynova

Cards quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#130. Poppy was busy with needlework, stitching a pair of men's slippers with bright wool threads, while Beatrix played solitaire on the floor near the hearth. Noticing the way her youngest sister was riffling through the cards, Amelia laughed. "Beatrix," she said after Win had finished a chapter, "why in heaven's name would you cheat at solitaire? You're playing against yourself."
"Then there's no one to object when I cheat."
"It's not whether you win but how you win that's important," Amelia said.
"I've heard that before, and I don't agree at all. It's much nicer to win."
Poppy shook her head over her embroidery. "Beatrix, you are positively shameless."
"And a winner," Beatrix said with satisfaction, laying down the exact card she wanted. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Cards quotes by Judith Guest

Cards quotes by Julia Quinn
#133. You have a minute and a half left."
"Fine," she snapped. "Then I'll reduce this conversation to one single fact. Today I had six callers. Six! Can you recall the last time I had six callers?"
Anthony just stared at her blankly.
"I can't," Daphne continued, in fine form now. "Because it has never happened. Six men marched up our steps, knocked on our door, and gave Humboldt their cards. Six men brought me flowers, engaged me in conversation, and one even recited poetry."
Simon winced.
"And do you know why?" she demanded, her voice rising dangerously. "Do you?"
Anthony, in his somewhat belatedly arrived wisdom, held his tongue.
"It is all because he" - she jabbed her forefinger toward Simon - "was kind enough to feign interest in me last night at Lady Danbury's ball. #Quote by Julia Quinn

Cards quotes by Joshua Foer
#135. 'Moonwalking with Einstein' refers to a memory device I used when I memorized a deck of playing cards at the U.S. Memory Championship. When I competed in 2006, I set a new U.S. record by memorizing a deck of cards in one minute and 40 seconds. That record has since fallen. #Quote by Joshua Foer
Cards quotes by Cassie Peterson
#136. I am overwhelmed by the rigmarole of bureaucratic paperwork. I can't keep it all straight - the unemployment forms, the food-stamp applications, the drastically increasing number of ID cards that I am being forced to carry around with me. Being poor is a full-time job. Every minute, the government demands that you prove your current economic status, leaving absolutely no time to improve it. I have to schedule job interviews between all my other red-tape appointments. #Quote by Cassie Peterson
Cards quotes by Gregory Maguire
#137. The fatal day rarely announces itself, but comes disguised as midsummer. Our private lives are like a colony of worlds expanding, contracting, breathing universal air into separate knowledges. Or like several packs of cards shuffled together by an expert anonymous hand, and dealt out in a random, amused or even hostile way. #Quote by Gregory Maguire
Cards quotes by Alysia Reiner
#138. I can do one 'Breaking Bad' in a night, or one 'Game of Thrones.' But 'House of Cards,' I can really do three in a night. I get sucked in. #Quote by Alysia Reiner
Cards quotes by Peter Maxwell Davies

Cards quotes by Douglas Coupland
#141. With Jason I thought I'd finally played my cards right, and now I'm just one more of those
broken, sad people out there, figuring out a year in advance where they can have Easter and
Christmas dinner without feeling like a burden or duty to others, cursing the quality of modern
movies because it's so hard to fill weeknights with movies when they're all crap, and waiting, just
waiting, for those three drinks a night to turn into four - and then, well, then I'll be applying my
makeup in the morning, combing my hair, washing my clothes, but it's not really for anyone. I'm
alive, but so what. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Cards quotes by Adrian Tomine
#142. I never go home and take out those business cards and go to those websites. But if there was a mini-comic here in my hand, I'd read it while I ate my lunch. I'm also probably one of the few remaining holdouts who hasn't consented to making the e-book versions of all my work, which is annoying to some of my publishers. #Quote by Adrian Tomine
Cards quotes by Cat Stevens
#143. I tried Zen and Ching, numerology, tarot cards and astrology. I tried to look back into the Bible, and could not find anything. At this time I did not know anything about Islam, and then, what I regarded as a miracle occurred. My brother had visited the mosque in Jerusalem, and was greatly impressed that while on the one hand it throbbed with life. #Quote by Cat Stevens
Cards quotes by Dejan Stojanovic
#144. Those who would like to become writers attend courses on writing poetry and prose and analyze their own work and that of other writers in development. Teachers teach them that talent is not required and that anyone, who wants to be a writer, can do it if they only master the technique of writing and master the formulas of the genre that they choose. With a little brain storming ideas written on cards, as well as designs and plans on the table, one can even write a novel in a month. There is no secret; the whole secret is in the technique, a little research, and the rest is solved by form, according to a formula, in which it is all nicely wrapped up and packaged.
And so, a bestseller is born. #Quote by Dejan Stojanovic
Cards quotes by Maureen Johnson
#145. Top Trumps appeared to be a game in which you got cards, and the cards had a picture (in this case, of a horse), and told you all kinds of stats for that horse, how fast it was, how big it was, etc. Whoever had the better horse won both the cards. You repeated this until someone had all the cards. So, basically it was exactly like high school, except it only took three minutes. Which was really a bit more humane, if you thought about it. #Quote by Maureen Johnson
Cards quotes by L. Filloon

Cards quotes by Daniel Dennett
#148. Let me lay my cards on the table. If I were to give an award for the single best idea anyone ever had, I'd give it to Darwin, ahead of even Newton or Einstein and everyone else. In a single stroke, the idea of evolution by natural selection unifies the realm of life, meaning and purpose with the realm of space and time, cause and effect, mechanism and physical law. It is not just a wonderful idea. It is a dangerous idea. #Quote by Daniel Dennett
Cards quotes by Gwendolyn Womack
#149. Divination is a mirror, reflecting what is here and here," Kezia would tell her, pointing to Nettie's heart and head. Nettie nodded like a solemn student.

Cards quotes by Carson McCullers
#151. Day and night she had drudged and struggled and thrown her soul into her work, and there was not much of her left over for anything else. Being human, she suffered from this lack and did what she could to make up for it. If she passed the evening bent over a table in the library and later declared that she had spent that time playing cards, it was as though she had managed to do both those things. Through the lies, she lived vicariously. The lies doubled the little of her existence that was left over from work and augmented the little rag end of her personal life. #Quote by Carson McCullers
Cards quotes by Jeannine Hall Gailey
#152. Alice in Darkness

Forget tears. Chasing
white animals with timepieces
in this drug-trip landscape
can only lead to more of same.
Hedgehogs, playing cards, paintbrushes:
full of undisclosed danger.
Didn't your mother tell you
not to kiss strangers?
That Cheshire smile shouldn't fool you.
Pull your skirt down.
Your nails are growing so fast
you're hardly human.
Alice, fight your version of Bedlam
as long as you can.
Sleep the sweet dream away
from that gooey looking glass, or mushrooms,
or the fear of your own body.
Forget what the night tastes like.
Stop wondering through the shadows,
holding your neck out
for the slice of the axe. #Quote by Jeannine Hall Gailey
Cards quotes by Linda Kage
#153. Sarah. Oh, Sarah." He closed his eyes and slapped his hand over his face. "Sarah, Sarah, Sarah. You don't try to use reason with a man when you want to play slap and tickle with him."
"You don't?" When he grinned and shook his head, I scowled. "Why not?"
Colton sighed. "Because dicks don't respond to reason; they respond to stimulation."
"So ... ?" What the heck was he saying?
"Seduce that motherfucker, and he'll fold like a house of cards. #Quote by Linda Kage

#154. There are lots of families who - who make irresponsible purchases. There are also a lot of families who have debt on credit cards because they use those credit cards to pay for medical bills. #Quote by Elizabeth Warren
Cards quotes by Neal Stephenson
#155. Coming up with lectures is a huge amount of work. I was willing to do one lecture for Gresham because I was honored to have been invited, but to create lectures for a class would probably require that I shut down everything else and concentrate on lectures for a couple of years. Then there would be many, many other skills that I'd have to learn, such as how to sit through a faculty meeting, how to deal with students, etc. It is really not in the cards for me. It's not who I am or what I do. I'm a novelist. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Cards quotes by R.D. Ronald
#156. Around the outside of the room other beautiful women wearing little or nothing at all flitted between the infatuated, intoxicated men, sometimes luring them away for a private dance. The men would follow obediently, weighed down by lust and credit cards. #Quote by R.D. Ronald
Cards quotes by Erika Swyler
#157. Ryzhkova was accustomed to tarot with its layers of meaning, interpretations, and reversals, and how a picture might look one way but contain a contrary truth. Used to her silent apprentice, she had forgotten that language itself was as subtle and slippery as her cards, and that words contained hidden seeds that blossomed with a speaker's intent. A wish for safety meant nothing if the force behind it was a desire to kill. Though she spoke of love and protection, dread, grief, and anger bled through. Each word that fell from her tongue bound itself to paper with a small part of her soul, infusing the cards not with love as she thought, but with a hex burned strong and deep by fear. Buried in the heart of the deck, the Fool's eyes shut. She closed the box. A #Quote by Erika Swyler

'It is what your best friends would advise. You are a moody, introspective young man, all too prone to look on the dark side of things. I shall never forget you that day at the dog races.

Cards quotes by Tanya Byrne
#161. Do you think that's what love is? Not what they say on the front of those cheesy Valentine's cards you see in petrol stations - you complete me - but is it when someone has seen you at your worst but still looks at you like you're the best thing that's ever happened to them? I think it might be. #Quote by Tanya Byrne
Cards quotes by H.G.Wells

Cards quotes by Rick Yancey
#164. 8:30 P.M.: Personal time. Free of Reznik at last. We wash our jumpsuits, shine our boots, scrub the barracks floor and the latrine, clean our rifles, pass around dirty magazines, and swap other contraband like candy and chewing gum. We play cards and bust each other's nuts and complain about Reznik. We share the day's rumors and tell bad jokes and push back against the silence inside our own heads, the place where the never-ending voiceless scream rises like the superheated air above a lava flow. Inevitably #Quote by Rick Yancey
Cards quotes by Maya Angelou
#165. Most people don't grow up. It's too damn difficult. What happens is most people get older. That's the truth of it. They honor their credit cards, they find parking spaces, they marry, they have the nerve to have children, but they don't grow up. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Cards quotes by Patton Oswalt

Cards quotes by Jamie McGuire
#168. Without their mothers nearby, most of my classmates had no clue how to balance their checkbook or even how much Tylenol to take and how often. In school we were babied, scolded, and told when to eat. We even had to raise our hands for permission to go to the bathroom. In just a few short weeks we would be free to rack up credit cards and student loans, or to sign contracts for an apartment we might not be able to afford, because we were taught how to learn, but not how to live. #Quote by Jamie McGuire

Cards quotes by Michael J. Sullivan

"I've been waiting for that. But I believe I told you not to come." Hadrian shifted in his chains and sighed. "I don't suppose there's much chance of a beautiful princess coming in here and saving us again."

Cards quotes by Elizabeth Warren
#171. Big banks churn out page after page of incomprehensible fine print to obscure the cost and risks of checking accounts, credit cards, mortgages and other financial products. The result is that consumers can't make direct product comparisons, markets aren't competitive, and costs are higher. If the playing field is leveled and the broken market fixed, a lot more money will stay in the pockets of millions of hard-working families. That's real stimulus - money to families, without increasing our national debt. #Quote by Elizabeth Warren

Cards quotes by Stephen King
#174. There's nothing to be scared of."
Instead of taking Charlie's pulse – there was really no point – he took one of the old man's hands in his. He saw Charlie's wife pulling down a shade in the bedroom, wearing nothing but the slip of Belgian lace he'd bought her for their first anniversary; saw how the ponytail swung over one shoulder when she turned to look at him, her face lit in a smile that was all yes. He saw a Farmall tractor with a striped umbrella raised over the seat. He smelled bacon and heard Frank Sinatra singing 'Come Fly with Me' from a cracked Motorola radio sitting on a worktable littered with tools. He saw a hubcap full of rain reflecting a red barn. He tasted blueberries and gutted a deer and fished in some distant lake whose surface was dappled by steady autumn rain. He was sixty, dancing with his wife in the American Legion hall. He was thirty, splitting wood. He was five, wearing shorts and pulling a red wagon. Then the pictures blurred together, the way cards do when they're shuffled in the hands of an expert, and the wind was blowing big snow down from the mountains, and in here was the silence and Azzie's solemn watching eyes. #Quote by Stephen King

Cards quotes by Shannon Mullen
#176. When you're in the wild, there's nothing to hide behind. No bars or credit cards or movie theatres or cell phones or credentials or security. You're just alone with yourself. You look around and lose yourself in the mountains, rivers, forests or tundra, but you can see nothing except for the chaos in your own mind. It is fucking terrifying and peaceful at the same time. #Quote by Shannon Mullen
Cards quotes by Libba Bray
#177. You don't know me, dude," he says, not smiling this time. Gonzo examines his cards, prepping for his next move. "People always think that they know other people, but they don't. Not really. I mean, maybe they know things about them, like they won't eat doughnuts or they like action movies or whatever. But they don't know what their friends do in their rooms alone at night or what happened to them when they were kids or if they feel ****ed up for no reason at all. #Quote by Libba Bray
Cards quotes by Carrie Vaughn
#178. All right. I'll bite. Here's what I think, with the caveat that I may be wrong. I think we're here to make the world a better place than we found it. I think we don't always deserve the cards we're dealt, good or bad. But we are judged by how we play the cards we're dealt. Those of us with a bum deal that makes it harder to do good
we just have to work a little more is all. There's no destiny. There's just muddling through without doing to much damage. #Quote by Carrie Vaughn
Cards quotes by Jonathan Franzen
#179. The more you pursue distractions, the less effective any particular distraction is, and so I'd had to up various dosages, until, before I knew it, I was checking my e-mail every ten minutes, and my plugs of tobacco were getting ever larger, and my two drinks a night had worsened to four, and I'd achieved such deep mastery of computer solitaire that my goal was no longer to win a game but to win two or more games in a row
a kind of meta-solitaire whose fascination consisted not in playing the cards but in surfing the streaks of wins and losses. #Quote by Jonathan Franzen
Cards quotes by Beth Ramsay
#180. For gosh sakes, it's not a horse race as to how many business cards you can fling out there! What a turn-off. #Quote by Beth Ramsay
Cards quotes by Callie Hart
#181. Do you want it, Zeth? Do you want to love me?"…
He opens his eyes, so dark, so hard and frightening. Even when he's laying his cards on the table, showing his hand, he still has the ability to make me tremble with one look... he takes a deep breath and says, "Yes. Yes, I want that. I want you. #Quote by Callie Hart
Cards quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#182. The Germans love frankness and honesty. It is so convenient to be frank and honest. This confidingness, this complacence, this showing the cards of German honesty, is probably the most dangerous and most successful disguise which the German is up to nowadays. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Cards quotes by Emilio Rivera
#183. On screen, we have to pretend we hate each other, or dislike each other, or don't want to talk or listen to each other, but off camera, it's just one big happy family. We hang out off the show and we play cards together and go have dinner together. #Quote by Emilio Rivera
Cards quotes by Samuel Johnson
#184. Most vices may be committed very genteelly: a man may debauch his friend's wife genteelly: he may cheat at cards genteelly #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Cards quotes by Paul Reubens
#185. I have a deal with a company that's going to do cards without the gum. I don't like sugarless gum, and I don't think it's much better for you. #Quote by Paul Reubens
Cards quotes by Bruce Forsyth
#186. It could still be a good night if you play your cards right. #Quote by Bruce Forsyth
Cards quotes by Jenny Offill
#187. I had written a novel that was more of a classic linear novel, and I worked on it and worked on it for years, and it always seemed like it wouldn't catch fire. At a certain point I just scrapped it all, and I kept maybe 15 percent of it, and I wrote those parts out on note cards. #Quote by Jenny Offill
Cards quotes by Truman Capote
#188. One day, I started writing, not knowing that I had chained myself for life to a noble but merciless master. When God hands you a gift, he also hands you a whip; and the whip is intended solely for self-flagellation ... I'm here alone in my dark madness, all by myself with my deck of cards - and, of course, the whip God gave me. #Quote by Truman Capote
Cards quotes by Bear Grylls
#189. Whatever doesn't kill you only serves to make you stronger. And in the grand scheme of life, I had survived and grown stronger, at least mentally, if not physically.
I had come within an inch of losing all my movement and, by the grace of God, still lived to tell the tale. I had learned so much, but above all, I had gained an understanding of the cards I had been playing with.
The problem now was that I had no job and no income.
Earning a living and following your heart can so often pull you in different directions, and I knew I wasn't the first person to feel that strain.
My decision to climb Everest was a bit of a "do or die" mission.
If I climbed it and became one of the youngest climbers ever to have reached the summit, then I had at least a sporting chance of getting some sort of job in the expedition world afterward--either doing talks or leading treks.
I would be able to use it as a springboard to raise sponsorship to do some other expeditions.
But on the other hand, if I failed, I would either be dead on the mountain or back home and broke--with no job and no qualifications.
The reality was that it wasn't a hard decision for me to make. Deep down in my bones, I just knew it was the right thing to do: to go for it.
Plus I have never been one to be too scared of that old imposter: failure.
I had never climbed for people's admiration; I had always climbed because I was half-decent at it--and now I had an avenue, through E #Quote by Bear Grylls
Cards quotes by Matt Bomer
#190. I really just try to focus on my job, which is to be an actor, and outside that, the cards fall where they may, and on not getting caught up in how people react to certain things. That's a death trap creatively. #Quote by Matt Bomer
Cards quotes by Ina Catrinescu
#191. I look forward to the day when business is less about being busy and more about being of service.

When Houses of Cards, become Houses of Hearts.

We can no longer afford to squander our passion on cold economics. It is time to reclaim our most valuable commodity and devote it to what's right. Devote it to concern & creation. To meaningful encounters & purpose-bound experiences.

May we no longer do business, but build places of thriving instead; ruled by one truth only ~ the wisdom of our hearts. #Quote by Ina Catrinescu
Cards quotes by Elizabeth McCracken
#192. When I was a teenager in Boston, a man on the subway handed me a card printed with tiny pictures of hands spelling out the alphabet in sign language. I AM DEAF, said the card. You were supposed to give the man some money in exchange.
I have thought of that card ever since, during difficult times, mine or someone else's; surely when tragedy has struck you dumb, you should be given a stack of cards that explain it for you. When Pudding died, I wanted my stack. I still want it. My first child was stillborn, it would say on the front. It remains the hardest thing for me to explain, even now, or maybe I mean especially now - now that his death feels like a non sequitur. My first child was stillborn. I want people to know but I don't want to say it aloud. People don't like to hear it but I think they might not mind reading it on a card. #Quote by Elizabeth McCracken
Cards quotes by Jeannette Walls
#193. Sometimes it didn't matter how much gumption you had. What mattered were the cards you'd been dealt. #Quote by Jeannette Walls
Cards quotes by Howard Rheingold
#194. Although we leave traces of our personal lives with our credit cards and Web browsers today, tomorrow's mobile devices will broadcast clouds of personal data to invisible monitors all around us. #Quote by Howard Rheingold
Cards quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#195. [On marriage and permanent attachment:]
Well, well
the prizes all go to the women who 'play their cards well'
but if they can only be won in that way, I would rather lose the game ... [C]lever [women] bide their time
make themselves indispensable first, and then se font prier [=play hard to get]. Clever
but I can't do it. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Cards quotes by Brendan I. Koerner
#196. According to tarot historian Gertrude Moakley, the cards' fanciful images - from the Fool to Death - were inspired by the costumed figures who participated in carnival parades. #Quote by Brendan I. Koerner
Cards quotes by Suze Orman
#197. Your goal should be to pay off your credit card bills in full at the end of each month and set aside money toward your emergency savings. #Quote by Suze Orman
Cards quotes by Robert Anton Wilson
#198. The hoodlum-occultist is "sociopathic" enough to, see through the conventional charade, the social mythology of his species. "They're all sheep," he thinks. "Marks. Suckers. Waiting to be fleeced." He has enough contact with some more-or-less genuine occult tradition to know a few of the gimmicks by which "social consciousness," normally conditioned consciousness, can be suspended. He is thus able to utilize mental brutality in place of the simple physical brutality of the ordinary hooligan.

He is quite powerless against those who realize that he is actually a stupid liar.

He is stupid because spending your life terrorizing and exploiting your inferiors is a dumb and boring existence for anyone with more than five billion brain cells. Can you imagine Beethoven ignoring the heavenly choirs his right lobe could hear just to pound on the wall and annoy the neighbors? Gödel pushing aside his sublime mathematics to go out and cheat at cards? Van Gogh deserting his easel to scrawl nasty caricatures in the men's toilet? Mental evil is always the stupidest evil because the mind itself is not a weapon but a potential paradise.

Every kind of malice is a stupidity, but occult malice is stupidest of all. To the extent that the mindwarper is not 100 percent charlatan through-and-through (and most of them are), to the extent that he has picked up some real occult lore somewhere, his use of it for malicious purposes is like using Shakespeare's sonnets for to #Quote by Robert Anton Wilson
Cards quotes by Helen Fielding
#199. Ugh. Would that Christmas could just be, without presents. It is just so stupid, everyone exhausting themselves, miserably haemorrhaging money on pointless items nobody wants: no longer tokens of love but angst-ridden solutions to problems. [...] What is the point of entire nation rushing round for six weeks in a bad mood preparing for utterly pointless Taste-of-Others exam which entire nation then fails and gets stuck with hideous unwanted merchandise as fallout? If gifts and cards were completely eradicated, then Christmas as pagan-style twinkly festival to distract from lengthy winter gloom would be lovely. But if government, religious bodies, parents, tradition, etc. insist on Christmas Gift Tax to ruin everything why not make it that everyone must go out and spend £500 on themselves then distribute the items among their relatives and friends to wrap up and give to them instead of this psychic-failure torment? #Quote by Helen Fielding
Cards quotes by John C. Reilly
#200. I love card games, and I've always loved board games and stuff like that as a kid, and I think it's that part of your brain that's engaged in con movies. It's like this 'Who's outsmarting whom?' #Quote by John C. Reilly
