Famous Blackjack Quotes From Famous People

21 is a great game with some hilarious words of wisdom from some very funny people. One of the most famous blackjack quotes comes from the legendary late-comedian Mitch Hedberg. "I love blackjack. But I'm not addicted to gambling. I'm addicted to sitting in a semi-circle." His off-beat one-liners are what made him such a success. Another of the famous blackjack quotes comes from Frankie Muniz, of Malcolm in the Middle fame: "Some kids are always getting into trouble or doing stuff, and I stay away from those types. I know I am no better than anyone else in this world. I'm just an actor, that's nothing special. But I'm not into anything bad. Just blackjack."

Words of Wisdom

Michael Shannon, from Boardwalk Empire, puts it well: "If Mother Teresa went to Atlantic City, I don't think she'd start playing blackjack." As does Nicky Hilton, in a typical Hilton-esque fashion: "At night when I can't sleep, I play blackjack online until I get tired or I lose my money." It's always best to know when to quit or cash-in the chips.

More Pearls

Here's another great truth, from the poker player Nick Dandalos, as to why he's a poker player and not a 21 player: "The house doesn't beat the player. It just gives him the opportunity to beat himself." Here's one of famous blackjack quotes from the famed biochemist Sir Bernard Katz, on the addiction: "As a boy, I remember the hypocrisy of Catholic school kids who, after peeling off like dive-bombers from the end of a long line walking to church, disappeared into the local candy store to gamble by playing 21."

Overall Point

A lot has been said about gambling, with famous quotes to go along with the games, but nothing as wise or insightful or just plain funny has been talked about in gambling as much as famous quotes about this notorious game. Whether they are uttered from famous people for their funny-factor, or if they include little bits of wisdom inside, these are all so true to some extent.
