by committing ourselves to the blind arbitrement of Chance, to the cast of a Dye or the turn of a card, we give the reins quite out of our Hands, and lose all Power and Authority over our spirits. We are tossed to and fro by every wind of Passion, and are enslaved to wild desires, excessive hopes, impotent Joys, and groundless Greifs.

— Reverend William Stith, rector of Henrico Parish
