  wordfunph: "During the 1960 Madrid Zonal Tournament, Portisch managed to overcome Gligoric and it seemed that he was happier than ever before. He openly admitted to me that he had not hoped for victory as he holds a particular respect for Gligoric."

- Dimitri Bjelica (from his book Grandmasters in Profile)
