Poker gems, #424

Alec Torelli, in Bluff magazine column, June, 2011, page 96, on what American online poker professionals should do now that the game is mostly gone.

The way I see it, when you have nothing to do, you are free to do anything you want!

...Just relax. Take a few breaths. The sun is still going to rise tomorrow. Take some time to be grateful for the countless options you have at your disposal. If poker is something you still fancy, what better opportunity to take advantage of living in Europe and experiencing something totally new? Or if you want to digress, you are free to take that trip you always wanted, learn an instrument or language, write a book, or climb Mount Everest. Remember, the only loss suffered here was monetary. Personally, I'm always comforted to know where the ingredient of money fits into my recipe for happiness, and it's usually no more important than a pinch of salt.

That quotation is spoken like someone who has never actually been poor. While I agree with the sentiment that money is not the be-all and end-all, there does have to be SOME.
