            The knight of knowledge must be able not only to love his enemies, but also to hate his friends.

              Gonna go with the obvious one.

                Kipling's If is as always a treasure trove for apt quotations...

                If you can meet with triumph and disaster
                And treat those two imposters just the same

                Clearly he understood the dangers of being results oriented.

                His advice on bankroll management is not so sound though:

                If you can make one heap of all your winnings
                And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,

                Although in his defence, at least he doesn't advocate moaning about bad beats:

                And lose, and start again at your beginnings
                And never breath a word about your loss;
