No matter what I say, the truth is that I love chess and I love chess players.

"If one wants to rid oneself of an unbearable pressure, one needs hashish."

- Nietzsche

"As usual: the pawns are all sacrificed."

- Garry Kasparov

"Why do you want to televise chess? Obviously, to fill your pockets. This way you're not profaning just chess; also chess fans and chess players."

- Louis Baquero

"Great players and many of their followers returned to the classical heritage and discovered new depths of this great, most solid defense."

- Kasparov, how to play the King's Gambit
