During my travels I met the great guru Sadwaniphurna who taught me that chess is not about winning or losing but about enjoying the game. Later I came across a sufi master who taught me chess is about learning from your losses. I forgot his name. In Ireland I met the monk, brother Bobo, who taught me chess is about maintaining the same attitude whether you win or lose. Finally I discovered ultimate truth in the cathedral of Notre Damme when the Spirit of Chess itself appeared to me : you must learn to develop your pawns.
