The Tartakower quote I have been looking for goes along the lines of:
'He was doing ok until he started thinking for himself'
If anyone finds it send it to me.
Chess is impossible...
Chess is like life… You can end up with thrusting positions, positions you have never tried before and positions that require a lot of intricacy in the middle. No sorry I haven’t a clue, I am getting confused with reading the Kama Sutra. Yes that’s right. Chess is like reading the Kama Sutra… (Ivan Other, Point operator, Trans Siberian Raliway and chess player).
Chess is just before god ...if not chess is all.................
"My love of dynamic complications often led me to avoid simplicity when perhaps it was the wisest choice." Garry Kasparov
Anyone can sacrifice a Queen. The trick is getting away with it.
"The biggest problem I see among People who want to excel in chess - and business and life in general - is not trusting their insticts enough. Too often they rely on having all the information, which forces them to a conclusion. This effectively reduces them to the role of a microprocessor ..." - Garry Kasparov
How come Bush Administration killed Fischer? That's new for me!
Chess is war, of art.
...Learn from the past and analyse the consequences of our choice.
"Life is like a chess game, you can't return the past but if you analyze the present situation, you can change the consequence."
"Respect all opponents but fear NONE"
Alekhine never won any tournament ahead of Capablanca.He won the world championship because Capa understimated him.Alekhine was wise when he refused to give a rematch and; for more than ten years did not participate in any tournament if Capablanca was there, when he did he lost!Alekhine never defeated Capa in tournament play.
Chess is a board game. It helps us to think deeper.
Chess is not a physical game. Players do not move a lot yet they are so much exhausted after the game particularly the one who losses the game.
