  1. Attacking gems
    "Direct and violent attacks against the King must be made *en masse*, with full force, to ensure their success. The opposition must be overcome at all cost; the attack cannot be broken off, because that generally means defeat"

    10/27/04 Nothing is dearer to a chess player's heart than his rating. Well, of course everyone knows he's under-rated, but his rating, its ups and downs, however miniscule, are his ego's stock-market report. -|-|- Lev Alburt -|-|-

    11/1/04 In a game with the Queen of England [Morphy] gallantly permitted Her Majesty to win, but with Napoleon III, he was less gallant. -|-|- New Orleans Times-Democrat, 1884 -|-|-

    11/23/04 In the last resort, position play is nothing other than a fight between mobility (of the pawn mass)on the one side and efforts to restrain this on the other.

    12/04/04Chess is an incredibly emotional game. If everything around you is harmonious, when you are feeling good, you are in a creative mood.

    12/8/04 Chess isn't 99% tactics, it's just that tactics takes up 99% of your time. -|-|- Dan Heisman. -|-|-

    12/18/04 A knowledge of tactics is the foundation of positional play. This is a rule which has stood its test in chess history and one which we cannot impress forcibly enough upon the young chess player. A beginner should avoid Queen's Gambit and French Defence and play open games instead! -|-|- Reti -|-|-

    12/19/04 In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is. -|-|- Yogi Berra -|-|-

    12/20/04 His mastery of open positions was so vast that little new has been learned about such positions after him. -|-|- Botvinnik (on Morphy) -|-|-

    12/21/04 Whiskey stimulates the imagination--but eating a big meal before the game is equivalent to giving knight odds. -|-|- Blackburne -|-|-

    1/5/05 Chess is so interesting in itself, as not to need the view of gain to induce engaging in it; and thence it is never played for money. -|-|- Benjamin Franklin -|-|-

    1/10/05 When you have two bodies of pawns, and an opportunity of transferring a pawn from one body to another, the pawn should pass to the larger division, to concentrate them. -|-|- Philidor -|-|-

    Endgames with the queen and pawns on both sides are among the most difficult in chess. -|-|- Keres -|-|-

    1/24/05 Life is a kind of chess, with struggle, competition, good and ill events. -|-|- Benjamin Franklin -|-|-

    1/25/05 If you want to win at chess, begin with the ending. -|-|- Chernev -|-|-

    1/26/05 Others may talk of the Round Table with its fifty Knights, but I greatly prefer the Square Table with only four Knights. -|-|- Fiske -|-|-

    1/30/04 For surely, of all the drugs in the world, Chess must be the most permanently pleasurable. o0O o0O -|-|- Assiac -|-|- ( ;) I'm not to sure about that) :P

    -|-|- Andrew Bonar Law -|-|- LOL bonar ;)

    1/8/05 Chess is not merely an idle amusement: life is a kind of chess. -|-|- Ben Franklin -|-|-

    1/9/05
    There is a certain nobility about chess that appertains to no other game ... to imagine a great player otherwise than respectable is difficult; he gives the impression, while at work, of being a stoic philosopher. -|-|- James Payn -|-|-

    1/12/05 The management of pawns is of the utmost importance. No other piece contributes as much to the success of a position, because of the tyrrany of the weak. The pawn is worth little and can therefore intimidate all pieces of greater value. -|-|- Hans Berliner -|-|-

    2/15/05 Kibitzer's don't play, they kibitz; they always know what you should have played, and they will tell you without being asked... it's almost impossible to shut them up. -|-|- Benko -|-|-

    2/16/05 There is a tendency to dash off a half-baked brilliancy, as soon as we see a couple of spectators gathered around our table; we don't stop to analyze it all out, for fear they might go away. -|-|- Mengarini -|-|-

    2/17/05 All men can see the tactics whereby I conquer, but what none can see is the strategy out of which victory is evolved. -|-|- Sun Tzu -|-|-

    2/19/05 You can only get good at chess if you love the game. -|-|- Fischer -|-|-

    2/22/05 There just isn't enough televised chess. -|-|- David Letterman -|-|-

    2/24/05 Don't get hung up on static formations. In chess, all things are fluid, because mobility is everything. Formations are only valid as part of a sequence or plan, not as goals. -|-|- Bruce Moon -|-|-

    2/25/05 Chess is the touchstone of human intellect. -|-|- Goethe -|-|-

    2/26/05 I was wrong in supposing that I could bottle up my chess and put it in a glass case. -|-|- Anderssen (after defeated by Morphy) -|-|-

    2/27/05 It is no easy matter to reply correctly to Lasker's bad moves. -|-|- Pollock -|-|-

    2/28/05 The position is incredibly complicated, and everything is suspended in mid-air; but Alekhine dominates the proceedings. He pulls the wires, and it is to his bidding that the marionettes dance. -|-|- Euwe -|-|-

    3/1/05 In order to improve your game, you must study the endgame before everything else, for whereas the the endings can be studied and mastered by themselves, the middle game and the opening must be studied in relation to the endgame. -|-|- Capablanca -|-|-

    3/2/05
    The endgame is the North Star by which a course may be set in both the opening and middlegame. -|-|- Collins. -|-|-

    3/20/05 my birthday
    -|-|- Me -|-|-

    3/21/05 There is no such thing as an absolutely freeing move. A freeing move in a position in which development has not been carried far always proves illusory, and vice versa, a move which does not come at all in the category of freeing moves can, given a surplus of tempi to our credit, lead to a very free game. -|-|- Nimzowitsch -|-|-

    3/23/05 The losing side has the greater part of his army in positions where they had no bearing whatever upon the questions at issue. They might have been just as well anywhere else but on the board. -|-|- Em. Lasker -|-|-

    3/29/05 If you are situated at a great distance from the enemy, and the strength of the two armies is equal, it is not easy to provoke a battle, and fighting will be to your disadvantage. -|-|- Sun Tzu -|-|-

    3/31/05 On the chessboard, lies and hypocrisy do not survive long. The creative combination lays bare the presumption of a lie; the merciless fact, culminating in a checkmate, contradicts the hypocrite. -|-|- Em. Lasker -|-|-

    5/2/05 A chess game is divided into three stages: The first, when you hope you have the advantage, the second when you believe you have an advantage, and the third... when you know you're going to lose! -|-|- Tartakower -|-|-

    4/3/05 Chess is war over the board. The object is to crush the opponent's mind. -|-|- Fischer -|-|-

    4/8/05 You have, let us say, a promising politician, a rising artist that you wish to destroy. Dagger or bomb are archaic and unreliable--but teach him, inoculate him with chess.

    --- H.G. Wells
    4/9/05 You have to give squares, to get squares.

    --- Fischer

    4/10/05 I can see the combinations as well as Alekhine, but I cannot get into the same positions.

    --- Bronstein

    4/20/05 :()o0O All things being equal, the play will prevail who first succeeds in uniting the efforts of both rooks in an important direction.

    --- Znosko-Borovsky

    4/25/05Chess is an egotistical game, and all its protagonists hold conceits of some kind or other, else there would be no point in playing.

    --- Charles Warburton

    4/30/05 If the student forces himself to examine all moves that smite, however absurd they may look at first glance, he is on the way to becoming a master of tactics.

    --- Purdy

    5/4/05 I had a toothache during the first game. In the second game, I had a headache. In the third game, it was an attack of rheumatism. In the fourth game, I wasn't feeling well. And in the fifth game? Well, must one have to win every game!?

    --- Tartakower

    5/7/05 Lose with grace and resign in a timely manner. If you are a lot of material down and don't have sufficient compensation, it is time to lay down your arms. This way you show your respect for both chess and your opponent.

    --- Svetlana Matveeva

    5/8/05 There are only two kinds of moves in the opening, moves which are wrong and moves which could be wrong.

    --- Tartakower

    5/12/05 Schlechter also showed us the generous side of his nature by declining to compete for any of the brilliancy prizes, for which he undoubtedly would have had the best chance. "I have won enough", he said. "Let others get something too."

    --- Gunsberg

    5/19/05 I recently heard DeFirmian say that he got better when he realized that nobody was any good. What he meant was that he was no longer intimidated by the top players.

    --- Walter Shipman (on Fischer)

    6/9/05 My wife is my second.

    --- Larsen

    6/10/05 I do not believe the Soviet players are more talented than the others; they are just more inclined to consider chess work than play.

    --- Najdorf

    6/14/05 Chess is so ancient that, by that distinction alone, it seems taken beyond the category of games altogether; and it has been said that it probably would have perished long ago, if it had not been destined to live for ever.

    --- Henry Bird
    6/15/05 An important rule for the beginner is the following: if it were possible to develop the pieces without the aid of pawn moves, the pawnless advance would be the correct one, for, as suggested, the pawn is not a fighting unit until in the sense that his crossing of the frontier is to be feared by the enemy, since obviously the attacking force of the pawns is small compared with that of the pieces.

    --- Nimzowitsch
    6/28/05 The ideas which now pass for brilliant innovations and advances are in fact mere revivals of ancient errors, and a further proof of the dictum that those who are ignorant of the past are condemned to repeat it.

    --- Henry Hazlitt

    6/29/05 Chess is to a considerable extent about pattern recognition. The more patterns you have firmly fixed in your memory, the more effective you are likely to be at the chessboard.

    --- Nunn
    7/3/05 You cannot play at chess if you are kind-hearted.

    --- French Saying

    7/4/05 We learn by Chess the habit of not being discouraged by present bad appearances in the state of our affairs, the habit of hoping for a favorable chance, and that of persevering in the secrets of resources.

    --- Benjamin Franklin

    7/12/05 Another very important point is the economy of forces in the defence. You will find people very often frightened when a Pawn or a piece is attacked, or especially the King; they try to bring all their pieces to defend him. This is wrong. You must always try and defend your King with as few pieces as you can, and it is only when attacking your opponent's King that you must bring forward all the pieces you can.

    --- Capablanca

    7/30/05 In the last resort, position play is nothing other than a fight between mobility (of the pawn mass) on the one side and efforts to restrain this on the other. In this all-embracing struggle the intrinsically very important device of the prophylactic is merely a means to an end.

    --- Nimzowitsch

    7/31/05 Position play is the treatment of positions in which sound attacking play is not possible, and purely defensive play is not necessary.

    --- Purdy

    8/1/05 Three pieces versus two Rooks (with equal pawns) is normally a draw, but in favor of the pieces because they have more play.

    --- Fine

    8/5/05 The human element, the human flaw and the human nobility--those are the reasons that chess matches are won or lost.

    --- Korchnoi

    8/9/05 Good positions don't win games, good moves do.

    --- Gerald Abrahams

    8/13/05 The less effort, the faster and more powerful you will be.

    --- Bruce Lee

    8/20/05 I think it's almost definite that the game is a draw theoretically.

    --- Fischer
    9/14/05 When the queens come off the board, the character of the game shifts, and the master must change his demeanor as well as his technique. The Marines are no longer storming the hill. The endgame is chilly and minimalist, and to play effectively in this new terrain, the heedless attacker must quiet himself and be patient, precise, and perhaps a little detached.

    --- Fred Waitzkin
    10/12/05 Morphy was an artist; and the best way to enjoy an artist is not to dissect him.

    --- Sergeant :)

    10/19/05 Good one
    It is the fight that pleases us, not the victory.

    --- Blaise Pascal
