"Playing the hand you're dealt"

" Life consists not in holding good cards
but in playing those you hold well."
-Josh Billings

~My grandpa loved to play cards, and he taught me many games and card tricks.
He didn't say long lengthy stories of inspiration, but he had his sayings.
One of them being, "Play the hand you are dealt," when I'd complain about life.
I always thought, "But I want different cards."

I saw this quote, and it reminded me of him, and I understood a little better what he had meant.

I would say that this goes right to the very heart of learning to be content in all circumstances.
