My favorite chessplayers are Alexander Alekhine, Paul Morphy and Garry Kasparov.
Alekhine Chess Quotes:
When asked, "How is that you pick better moves than you opponents?", Alekhine responded: I'm very glad you asked me that, because, as it happens, there is a very simple answer. I think up my own moves, and I make my opponent think up his."
"A chessmaster should be a combination of a beast of prey and a monk."
"Chess is not only knowledge and logic."
