* Some Tartakower quotes, and kept the rest:

"Blunders rarely travel alone" - Karpov

"It takes a strong player to realize how truly weak he is." - Tartakower

"It was worse than a mistake - it was a blunder." - DePeaza

"The Blunders are all there - waiting to be made." - Tartakower

"Mate ends the Game." - Fletcher

"Dubious - Therefore Playable" - Tartakower

"Chess is a fairy tale of 1,001 blunders." -Tartakower

"Rook endings are the most democratic endings of all, every player gets a chance to badly misplace his Rook." Anonymous

"It makes no difference whether you win or lose, until you lose." Anonymous

"Chess has three phases: The first when one hopes one has an advantage; The second when one believes one has an advantage; And the third when one knows one is going to lose." - Savielly Tartakower

Understatement of the year? "I'm not a weak player" then 21 year-old GM Peter Svidler then three time Champion of Russia

"Push the pawns, open the files, double the rooks, give the mate" Fletcher & Krewson 1979

"Problems - once solved - rarely stay that way." - Russell Ackoff (Not sure if Dr. Ackoff is a chessplayer, but hey I just liked that quote

Euphemism for "I got crushed!" "I was unable to solve the problems of the position in the time allotted."
