A Winning Bet
“If we listened to our intellect,
we’d never have a love affair.
We’d never have a friendship.
We’d never go into business,
because we’d be cynical. Well,
that’s nonsense. You’ve got to
jump off cliffs all the time and
build your wings on the way down.”
All of life is a bit of a gamble, and in our daily wagers, cards, chips and dice need not be involved. These gambles come at us from every direction, from high-powered, multimillion dollar negotiations, to deciding whether it is wise to eat the mysterious leftovers tucked away in the back of the fridge.
