Quotes

My mother married at a young age to a poor man she hardly knew, who turned abusive. Risking being branded as "disgrasyada" in the ` "70s, she revealed her situation to her family to save herself and her children from her abusive husband — and took all the blame."
"Some gamble for the excitement,” Long says. “Some people gamble for the escape to get away from the rest of their life. Some people will gamble as an activity, to have something they can do on a regular basis."
"Once the gambler crosses that line and it becomes an addiction, we see divorce, we see bankruptcies, we see people lose their homes, we see children suffering because they don't have resources to continue the lifestyle that they're used to" he explains
...I was ironising and cynic idling and self-deprecating in my usual manner but he cut me off in media res: "No! No! No! You can't do this here. Everyone here is bulled up about themselves and they don't speak irony. They speak hyperbole."
