A nice chess quote !
Composed by Omar Khayyam ad translated by Fitzerald linking chess to life
(& from the message of my affectionate brother Chesstyrant !)
"It's (Life's) a huge square of nights and days,
Where Destiny with men for pieces plays.
Moves hither and thither, mates and slays,
And then, one by one, in the closet lays."
