Quotes about the game of life

Arthur Rubinstein

Life is the game that must be played, this truth at least, good friends, we know; so live and laugh, nor be dismayed as one by one the phantoms go.

Hermann Hesse

Happiness (Glück)

If luck you chase, you have not grown
enough for happiness to stay,
not even if you get your way.

If, what you lost, you still bemoan,
and grasp at tasks, and dash and dart,
you have not known true peace of heart.

But if no wishes are your own,
and you don't try to win the game,
and Lady Luck is just a name,

then tides of life won't reach your breast?
and all your strife
and all your soul will rest.

Tristan Tzara

We (Dadaists) are often told that we are incoherent, but into this word people try to put an insult that it is rather hard for me to fathom. Everything is incoherent... There is no logic... The acts of life have no beginning and no end. Everything happens in a completely idiotic way. That is why everything is alike. Simplicity is called Dada. Any attempt to conciliate an inexplicable momentary state with logic strikes me as a boring kind of game... Like everything in life, Dada is useless... Perhaps you will understand me better when I tell you that Dada is a virgin microbe that penetrates with the insistence of air into all of the spaces that reason has not been able to fill with words or conventions.

Good Man In The Storm

It just occurred to me
I must be blind
Why do I try so hard to keep my cool
When Im about to lose my mind
There was a vision
Flashing by
Of a summers day I spent with you
Of a child who never learnt how to cry
When those around me
Fall in despair
I call upon my common sense
cause someone has to care
A sudden decision
I cant explain
Though Ive often tried to change the rules
The game remains the same
For love
Ive played the part so many times
It fits me like a glove
But Im the victim

The game of life is the game of boomerangs. Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later, with astounding accuracy.

The game of life is not so much in holding a good hand as playing a poor hand well.

Baseball is a lot like life. The line drives are caught, the squibbles go for base hits. It's an unfair game.

The game of life is to come up a winner, to be a success, or to achieve what we set out to do. Yet there is always the danger of failing as a human being.

Life is a game in which the rules are constantly changing nothing spoils a game more than those who take it seriously. Adultery Phooey You should never subjugate yourself to another nor seek the subjugation of someone else to yourself. If you follow that Crispian principle you will be able to say 'Phooey,' too, instead of reaching for your gun when you fancy yourself betrayed.
