I have not posted anything in a long time. I guess it is because I am getting old and tired. I came upon some quotes from my uncle Al Capone that I will share with you today.

On his gambling habit: "I've lost a million and a half on the horses and dice in the last two years. And the funny part is, I still like 'em, and if someone handed me another million I'd put it right in th nose of some horse that looked good to me."

After reading a biography: "I'll have to hand it to Napoleon as the world's greatest racketeer. But I could have wised him up on some things. (His trouble was a swelled head; Elba should have been a warning.) But he was just like the rest of us. He didn't know when to quit and had to get back in the racket. He simply put himself on the spot."
