Famous quotes containing the word cheat:

    Life is essentially a cheat and its conditions are those of defeat ... the redeeming things are not “happiness and pleasure” but the deeper satisfactions that come out of struggle.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    So cheat your landlord if you can and must, but do not try to shortchange the Muse. It cannot be done. You can’t fake quality any more than you can fake a good meal.
    William Burroughs (b. 1914)

    and the Soul endure
    A silence that is neither for nor against her faith
    That God’s Will will be done, that, in spite of her prayers,
    God will cheat no one, not even the world of its triumph.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)
