: Any with a phrase having to do with gambling, luck of the dice, roll of the dice,winning in the end . . ???
: Something please.

: Or can someone translate this?
: Abstention from any aleatory undertaking precludes a potential escalation of lucretive nature.
: (Holding back or not gambling, takes the place of placing money)

I would read this, "if you never gamble,
neither will you get lots of money"

or, "nothing ventured, nothing gained"
