  75. <ul><li>Games give us something to do when there is nothing to do. We thus call games ‘pastimes’ and regard them as trifling fillers of the interstices of our lives. But they are much more important than that. They are clues to the future. And their serious cultivation now is perhaps our only salvation. </li></ul><ul><li>— Bernard Suits, philosopher   </li></ul>
