Gamble

This quote struck me this evening as I looked around for inspiration for a post.

One man cannot do right in one department
of life whilst he is occupied in doing wrong
in any other department. Life is one
indivisible whole.
~Mahatma Gandhi

Relatively recently I heard a story of a man who was said to be a gambler, and not a very good one because he was always broke. Being a gambler was the explanation for why he was so short of money. After his death it transpired that he actually lived a double life. He was always broke because he was supporting two families! He was indeed a gambler!

Gambler – Someone who risks loss or injury in the hope of gain or excitement. And who in this world has not done that? And who has not lived to regret that?
