No one ever won a game by resigning ~ Savielli Tartakower
When you see a good move, look for a better one ~ Emanuel Lasker
When your house is on fire, you can’t be bothered with the neighbors. Or, as we say in chess, if your King is under attack, don’t worry about losing a pawn on the queen side ~ Garry Kasparov
You may learn much more from a game you lose than from a game you win. You will have to lose hundreds of games before becoming a good player ~ José Raúl Capablanca
A chess game is like a highly simplified version of our everyday life spread on a checkered board with 64 squares that resonates a battle field in action.
