The beauty of a move lies not in its appearance but in the thought behind it. - Aaron Nimzowitsch The laws of chess do not permit a free choice: you have to move whether you like it or not. - Emanuel Lasker Don't be afraid of losing, be afraid of playing a game and not learning something. - Dan Heisman Win with grace, lose with dignity! - Susan Polgar Lack of patience is probably the most common reason for losing a game, or drawing games that should have been won. - Bent Larsen To play for a draw, at any rate with white, is to some degree a crime against chess. - Mikhail Tal Quiet moves often make a stronger impression than a wild combination with heavy sacrifices. - Mikhail Tal There are two types of sacrifices: correct ones, and mine. - Mikhail Tal Without error there can be no brilliancy. - Emanuel Lasker When the Chess game is over, the Pawn and the king go back to the same box. - Irish proverb A player surprised is half beaten. - Proverb A strong memory, concentration, imagination, and a strong will is required to become a great chess player. Bobby Fischer When you see a good move, look for a better one. - Emanuel Lasker The hardest game to win is a won game. - Emanuel Lasker Do not permit yourself to fall in love with the end-game play to the exclusion of entire games. It is well to have the whole story of how it happened; the complete play, not the denouement only. Do not embrace the rag-time and vaudeville of chess. - Emanuel Lasker I believe in magic ... There is magic in the creative faculty such as great poets and philosophers conspicuously possess, and equally in the creative chessmaster.- Emanuel Lasker By positional play a master tries to prove and exploit true values, whereas by combinations he seeks to refute false values ... A combination produces an unexpected re-assessment of values. - Emanuel Lasker Chess is life. - Bobby Fischer
