"Life is a game, boy. Life is a game that one plays according to the rules."J D Salinger, ‘Catcher in the Rye’, 1951
“Yes, sir. I know it is. I know it.”
Game, my ass. Some game. If you get on the side where all the hot-shots are, then it’s a game, all right — I’ll admit that. But if you get on the other side, where there aren’t any hot-shots, then what’s a game about it? Nothing. No game.
