"Chess for me is not a game, but an art. Yes, and I take upon myself all those responsibilities which an art imposes on its adherents."
"Chess first of all teaches you to be objective."
"Chess is not only knowledge and logic."
"I consider chess an art, and accept all those responsibilities which art places upon its devotees."
"Chess is a matter of vanity."
"Chess will always be the master of us all."
Aleksandr Aleksandrovich Alyokhin
