“Lottery:  A tax on people who are bad at math.” -Author Unknown

“Aspiring to easy financial gain might be normal, but it’s also self-destructive.  Most people don’t understand that easy financial gain is one of the worst things that can happen to them.  Ask a lottery winner.  According to author Don McNay’s book, Life Lessons from the Lottery, the lives of lottery winners are usually a wreck within about five years of winning.  More is bad when you’re not prepared for it…when you didn’t do more to earn it.”  -Dan Ferris
