"God does not play dice with the universe."
- Albert Einstein
Doesn’t get you any closer to him.
Does as much good as knowing old maids.
Random acts of kindness, like one-armed bandits
Have an uncertain payoff.
You can go fish, reach 21 and hit me,
But divine conversations occur
With all of the frequency of a royal straight flush
On a blue moon in the Year of the Dragon
During your final hour on death row, waiting for a pardon.
Unfortunately, beating those odds only happens if you play.
