Everyone feel free to post any famous chess quotes they know!
One bad move nullifies forty good ones. - I.A. Horowitz
"Which do I prefer? Chess or sex? It depends on the position." - Spassky
I would say Oxford librarian & Clergy was good in his assessment of Chess and I agree with him!!
In a chess game:
MAN SAID:_"True love is like a man playing chess. Always afraid of lossing his queen."
WOMAN SAID:_"No matter how difficult the game is,the queen always has the deadliest moves.The sad part is that she would sacrifice even herself just to let the king live." ^_^
Chess-play is a good and witty exercise of the mind for some kind of men, but if it proceed from overmuch study, in such a case it may do more harm than good; it is a game too troublesome for some men's brains. - (clergyman and Librarian at Oxford University) - Robt. Burton (1621)
Pawns are the soul of chess...
~ Francois Andre Phillidor
"Prawn is the soul of chess, and after dinner you will discover mate?!"
I'm sorry. I apologize. I was'nt quoting, I was making stuff up. The congresswoman shot by a punk made mad by philosophy.If I had a thing for guns and not chess,that, if not for filial piety,could have been me. That punk put out a few incoherent web pages; you had to put some effort into getting meaning from them
I'm dealing with my madness in a socially exceptable manner. Uncomfortable things may be said;but that discomfort is the same as the collapse of well laid plans.It's the price of a free society;you have to put up with anti-war stuff;you need to put up with alternative philosophy.
A thesis could be mad and papers written to support - Life is Language/Language is Metaphore. This means(like it or not,all you binary beings out there):
CHESS IS LIFE!
Hey New York angel; so,chess is chess & life is life but more than that,it's like a knife to cut you more when things get rife; if it isn't more it is a fight.And chess moves hurt. It's the king of metaphore,man. The whole idea that 'it's a game and nothing more than that,is nihilistic.It's basically bloodthirsty moneylove.A very sad characteristic. But it is our nature and in a competive enviorment life,in and of itself has no value.There is no value to anything that doesn't nurish or direct the market force, the goddess Shiva; who is worshipped and adored in this land of ours.
TACTICS: giving you opponent more problems than can be solved in one move.
STRATEGY: creating those problems.
opponents blunders are your lader of win & piller post for learning!!
After the game the king and the pawn go into the same box --Italian Proverb
Chess is like life… Bishops can keep going until they bump into something. No wait, I am remembering that impromptu ice hockey match during a break at the General Synod. Yes that’s it. Chess is like an impromptu ice hockey match during a break at the General Synod…
no..no its like hockey one bad move may result in winning or loseing,but there is always a hope.they may f....up as bad as you or worse.
CHESS; The GAME of the KINGS, The KING of the GAMES....
Chess is like life… To be successful you have to get control of the centre of the board. No sorry, easy mistake, I am getting it confused with big wave surfing. Yes that’s right. Chess is like big wave surfing…
i will pwn your knight
Chess is like a soap opera in Spanish. I don't understand what's going on.
"A game of chess is like a sword fight. You must think first before you move."
Shaolin & Wu Tang
