    Within a year, Bob almost gambled

    I am wondering if my sentences are grammatically correct.

    Within a year, Bob almost gambled his entire inheritance away. His acquaintances couldn't believe their eyes when they saw him in rags queuing at a food bank.

    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    I would put a comma after "rags."
