"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions.  Small people always do that, but the really great make you believe that you too, can become great."

- Mark Twain

"Your eye on the wings, your mind on the centre, that is the deepest meaning of positional play."  - Aron Nimzovitch (

"The greatest tragedy ever to befall our civilized society, of course with the exceptions of war and genocide, was when we lost both Paul Morphy and Robert James Fischer to madness just as they were on the cusp of their prime years. Each had scaled the mountains of the chess world with a brilliant flash of champagne glow that extinguished almost as suddenly as they appeared. They became the heralded champions of their time only to completely vanish like the ghost of obscurity. 

Each of them withdrew from prying eyes and succumbed to the paranoia that is often associated with tremendous brilliance.  Of all the tragedies that have occurred throughout our entire historical record, this the most taxing.

That is how good these men were at chess."

- Eddie Saldana

This image has a profound impact on my overall understanding of the Universe.  Every single, dot, smudge and smear is an entire galaxy made up of a trillions of stars.....Most of which, as has been proven ten fold in the last few years, have terrestrial or gas giant planets revolving around them.
