Overheard at the club, when one player was complaining to a friend about the verbal abuse from their partner. The friend responded "You must like it, you keep doing it"

"You should play bridge for fun. The instant you find yourself playing the game for any other reason, you should pack it up and go on to something else."
Charles H. Goren, 1901 - 1991

Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid. - Albert Einstein

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word bridge is the English pronunciation of the game called "biritch". ... The oldest known reference to the rules of the game dates from 1886 and calls it "Biritch, or Russian Whist".
