    Mine is: " Chess is a game by its form,an art by its content and a science by the difficult of gaining mastery in it.Chess can convey as much happiness as a good book or work of music can.However,it is necessary to play well and only afterwards will one experience real delight."

                                                                 - Tigran V. Petrosian

    You may post your own personal quotation of how you define your aproach to the royal game,not necessary a famous one.Regards of the Ghost...Smile

    "I love all positions. Give me a difficult positional game, I will play it. Give me a bad position, I will defend it. Openings, endgames, complicated positions, dull draws, I love them and I will do my very best. But totally won positions, I cannot stand them."
