"You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em,
Know when to walk away and know when to run.
You never count your money when you're sittin' at the table.
There'll be time enough for countin' when the dealin's done.

Now ev'ry gambler knows that the secret to survivin'
Is knowin' what to throw away and knowing what to keep.
'Cause ev'ry hand's a winner and ev'ry hand's a loser,
And the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep
."

written by Don Schlitz
but recorded and made famous by Kenny Rogers

Johnny Cash recorded it. Bobby Bare recorded it. Under the name “Charlie Tango,” Conway Twitty’s son, Michael Twitty, recorded it. Even the songwriter himself, Don Schlitz, recorded it, as well as other people whose names are a distant memory.
But when Kenny Rogers and producer Larry Butler finally recorded “The Gambler,” Schlitz was able to quit his graveyard shift computer operator job and start working as a professional songwriter.

God always gives you enough time to do His will. If you're always out of time, you're either doing things out of his will, OR doing the right things in wrong ways.

Pentimento (plural pentimenti) is an alteration in a painting, evidenced by traces of previous work, showing that the artist has changed his or her mind as to the composition during the process of painting.

Some of the greatest masterpieces of all time reflect this trait.
