Changing the cards in a poker game is about as useful as changing the air in your tires.
On feeling pity for your friends when they’re losing: Ah like you, son. But I’ll put a rattlesnake in your pocket and ask you for a match.

It’s not how much luck you have, its’ when you have it.
In poker there’s a time to pass and a time to bluff. The trick is to figure out which.
Pappy once told me—If you ever get into a game with men who play as smart as you do...quit. That’s gamblin’.
Whether he likes it or not, a man’s character is stripped bare at the poker table. If the other players read him better than he does, he has only himself to blame. Unless he is both able and prepared to see himself as others do—flaws and all—he will be a loser in cards as in life.
The most common mistake in history is underestimating your opponent...Happens every day in poker.
