“When youre playing against a stacked deck, compete even harder.Show the world how much youll fight for the winners circle.If you do, someday the cellophane will crackle off a fresh pack,one that belongs to you, and the cards will be stacked in your favor.(GreatQuotes).”-Pat Riley(former basketball great)
