From Baker to Farmer to Welder and so on. It is not the intent of this collection to include Lasker, Schlechter, Tartakower, Diemer, or Fischer, as they have their own collections. However, a few of their games will be included. Geller and Bisguier have their own collection now.

The Fox With His Tail Cut Off

A cunning old fox, of plundering habits,
Great crauncher of fowls, great catcher of rabbits, Whom none of his sort had caught in a nap,
Was finally caught in somebody's trap.
By luck he escaped, not wholly and hale,
For the price of his luck was the loss of his tail. Escaped in this way, to save his disgrace,
He thought to get others in similar case.
One day that the foxes in council were met,
"Why wear we," said he, "this cumbering weight,
Which sweeps in the dirt wherever it goes?
Pray tell me its use, if any one knows.
If the council will take my advice,
We shall dock off our tails in a trice."
"Your advice may be good," said one on the ground; "But, before I reply, pray turn yourself round." Whereat such a shout from the council was heard, Poor bob-tail, confounded, could say not a word. To urge the reform would have wasted his breath. Long tails were the mode till the day of his death.

Riddle: I am wet when drying. What am I?
Riddle Answer below.

The Human Seasons
by John Keats

Four Seasons fill the measure of the year;
There are four seasons in the mind of man:
He has his lusty Spring, when fancy clear
Takes in all beauty with an easy span:
He has his Summer, when luxuriously
Spring's honied cud of youthful thought he loves To ruminate, and by such dreaming high
Is nearest unto heaven: quiet coves
His soul has in its Autumn, when his wings
He furleth close; contented so to look
On mists in idleness—to let fair things
Pass by unheeded as a threshold brook.
He has his Winter too of pale misfeature,
Or else he would forego his mortal nature.

Riddle Answer: A towel.

A toast to friendship:

‘Here's to Tall Ships,
Here's to Small Ships,
Here's to all the Ships at Sea.
But the best Ships are Friendships,
Here's to You and Me!'

"Every chess master was once a beginner." — Irving Chernev

"Chess opens and enriches your mind." — Saudin Robovic

"All I want to do, ever, is just play chess." — Bobby Fischer

"In the beginning of the game ignore the search for combinations, abstain from violent moves, aim for small advantages, accumulate them, and only after having attained these ends search for the combination – and then with all the power of will and intellect, because then the combination must exist, however deeply hidden." — Emanuel Lasker

"Chess is the gymnasium of the mind." — Blasie Pascal

"You can only get good at chess if you love the game." — Bobby Fischer

"Sometimes in life, and in chess, you must take one step back to take two steps forward." — IM Levy Rozman, GothamChess

So much, much, much better to be an incurable optimist than deceitful and untrustworthy.

Chess master and writer Fred Reinfeld (1910-61) once wrote that Wilhelm Steinitz was "a fine writer of English prose, equally bold in expression when he is conveying some nuance of technical judgement and when he is grinding his teeth over some fancied insult."

"The defensive power of a pinned piece is only imaginary." — Aaron Nimzowitsch

"Openings teach you openings, endgames teach you chess!" — Stephan Gerzadowicz

"The king is a fighting piece. Use it!" — Wilhelm Steinitz

"Don't even mention losing to me. I can't stand to think of it." — Bobby Fischer

Lichess has all the same basic offerings as a large community, many game types, tutorials, puzzles, and livestreams. The site has a simple appearance, and it seems built to get you where you want to go in as few clicks as possible. You can create an account, but if you're not concerned with tracking your games and finding other players at your level, there's no need to log in. Just fire up a new game, try some puzzles, or watch a chess streamer play three-minute games while listening to techno and chatting with the comments section.

"Friend, you don't have to earn God's love or try harder. You're precious in His sight, covered by the priceless blood of Jesus, and indwelt by His Holy Spirit. Don't hide your heart or fear you're not good enough for Him to care for you. Accept His love, obey Him, and allow Him to keep you in His wonderful freedom." — Charles F. Stanley

I play the Fred: said...
You're distraught
because you're not
able to cope
