Hey, you didn't say famous chess quotes!
Here is the best chess quote ever for chess and life:
"The student can learn more in 10 hours of properly tutored instruction than in 10 years of trial and error".
Emanuel Lasker [from The Chess Companion by Irving Chernev]
That's a good one
I read that quote in a list of quotes in the book by Chernev. I'd love to know exactly where Emanuel Lasker wrote or said that. I have enough faith in Chernev that it is correct. But I have looked for its exact origin and haven't had success.
Fantastic quote though I agree! One that you would stick on your office door, school locker etc
