    Here is the best chess quote ever for chess and life:

    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 Laughing
