Empty Shell - Stanislas

This quote was added by xevenofhearts
With a stacked deck of cards, not only can you control the inanimate object itself, but also the passionate human gambler whose cards you deal. You can control his emotions; give him a high pair and watch him mask his satisfaction, or you can give him rags and elicit hopelessness. You can control his actions, deal a favorable flop and watch him bet his plastic metaphors of perceived happiness. You can make him an empty shell of a man just by using a deck of cards and a little dishonesty.
