From Emily Dickinson:

I'm a meeple! Who are you?
Are you a meeple, too?
Then there's a pair of us — don't tell!
They'd banish us, you know.

How dreary to be a token!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!

Let me try Melville again, this time as a GenCon attendee:

"Call me Ishmael. Some years ago - never mind how long precisely - having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me in the dealer hall, I thought I would stroll about a little and see the other facets of the convention. It is a way I have of driving off the gamer funk, and regulating the analysis-paralysis. Whenever I find myself growing grim about the fanny-pack; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before True Dungeon, and bringing up the rear of the Fantasy Flight queue; and especially whenever my opponents get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the LARPer groups, and methodically knocking people's wizard hats off - then, I account it high time to get to bed as soon as I can."

V.P., or not V.P.--that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the game to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous travels
Or to go onward past the bridge of darkness
And by opposing end them. To die, to sleep--
No more--and by a sleep to say we end
The marketgoing, and the thousand makings of wagons
That meeple is heir to. 'Tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished. To die, to chronicle--
To chronicle--perchance to win: ay, there's the rub,
For in that sleep of death what victory may come
When we have shuffled off this cardboard coil,
Must give us pause

With respect to William Shakespeare and sonnet number 18

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more tense and more desperate:
Coal and Oil do shake the darling buds of May,
And wind power’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of auction shines,
And often are his electro reserves dimm'd;
And every city from city sometime declines,
By Step or Phase changing course untrimm'd;
But thy eternal bureaucracy shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fuel thou owest;
Nor shall Step 3 brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When one electro short in money thou growest:
So long as players can build or eyes can see,
So long lives money and this gives tie break to thee.

Gone With the Wind quote

Original: "Until you've lost your reputation, you never realize what a burden it was or what freedom really is."

Board Gamer Rhett Butler: "Until you've trashed your Estates and Coppers, you never realize what a burden they were or what deck efficiency really is."

Traditional nursery rhyme:

Mary had a little lamb.
Then she had a little ham.
Next she got some stone and wood.
She played 'gricola good.
