You have nothing to fear but my library.

"Ein Mensch, was ka Schach spielt, ist ka Mensch. Im Schach sitzt die Intelligenz, sag' ich. Da kann einer vier Meter lang sein, Schach muß er spielen, sonst ist er ein Tepp. Ich kann Schach. Ich bin auch kein Tepp. Jetzt frag' ich Sie; wenn Sie wollen, antworten Sie mir. Wenn Sie nicht wollen, antworten Sie nicht. Wozu hat ein Mensch den Kopf? Ich sag's Ihnen selbst, sonst zerbrechen S' Ihnen noch den Kopf, es wär' schad' drum. Zum Schach hat er den Kopf. Verstehen Sie mich? Sagen Sie ja, dann ist alles gut. Sagen Sie nein, dann sag' ich's Ihnen nochmal, weil Sie's sind."

Weltmeister Dr. Siegfried Fischer(le)
from Elias Canetti, Die Blendung, 1935

It's better to have D Love and lost than never to have D Love at all.

Rudy Kousbroek: Larkensviedje

Die ochtend zei het wrattenzwijn:
Nu moet het afgezopen lijn,
Stijnen helpt geen kweek.

Ja, drerk in plaats van woefenis:
Leven en schrijzen, room voos bis,
De wagen van de deek:

Waandag, Minsdag,
Zoensdag, Wonderdag,
Dijdag, Waterdag, Vrondag.

Zes dagen bijver zijn als nijen,
Op Vrondag vredig liggen zijen,
Dat maakt een woede geek.

Philosophy for beginners:
I do not think about things I don't think about.

My oldest granddaughter plays Debussy:

Little sister tackles Beethoven:

   Dec-07-19 F Deacon vs Steinitz, 1863 (replies)
sneaky pete: Bachmann (volume 1, page 60): "Von Weiss durch Zeitüberschreitung verloren." White lost on time.
   Dec-04-19 K Behting vs Nimzowitsch, 1911 (replies)
sneaky pete: <jfq> I can't give a link to that DSZ issue, I only have an old fashioned papery thing. The game is on pages 110 and 111. The heading reads: 8456. Französisches Springerspiel. (1. Partie eines Korrespondenzwettkampfes. Gespielt von April bis Dezember 1912.) C. ...
   Nov-26-19 Prins vs A Pomar Salamanca, 1951
sneaky pete: The score is wrong. In this position [DIAGRAM] white didn't play 74.Qb6+ Ka2 75.Qf2+ .. but 74.Qg3+ Ka2 75.Qf3 .. [DIAGRAM]
   Nov-13-19 S Von Freymann vs Duras, 1912
sneaky pete: 12... fxg5 13.Qf7+ Qxf7 14.Bxf7+ Kf8 15.Bxg5 .. [DIAGRAM] gives white strong attacking chances. Uncredited analysis quoted by Gillam. Whether these chances are sufficient compensation for the sacrificed Knight I don't know. At least Ra8, Nb8 and Bc8 will not participate in the ...
   Oct-10-19 M Nimtz vs M Skorpik, 1984
sneaky pete: Martin Skorpik was born October 12, 1978, if we can believe the biographical information here. I don't believe he played a top level correspondence game in 1984. My guess is that black in this game is Vlastimil Skorpik.
   Oct-07-19 E Schiller vs Busch, 1970
sneaky pete: <sea7kemp> The Google translation is more or less accurate, but a bit unimaginative. I would prefer something like Suddenly, like Mack the Knife, Auntie shows up at d5.
   Sep-23-19 G W Medley vs Morphy, 1858 (replies)
sneaky pete: Who invented this game?
   Sep-19-19 Spielmann vs K Treybal, 1926
sneaky pete: If 23... Nxe5 24.Nd4 .. [DIAGRAM] regains the Knight.
   Sep-14-19 A Meek vs Morphy, 1857 (replies)
sneaky pete: After 27... Qxb1 28.Nxe6 Qh7 29.Nxf8 Bxf8 [DIAGRAM] black has won <only> a Knight. The game continuation wins a Knight and 1 or 2 pawns, leaving the black pieces better placed. The Meek shall inherit nothing, Morphy must have thought.
   Sep-05-19 Weenink vs S Landau, 1930
sneaky pete: After 16... Nd7 [DIAGRAM] the game might have lasted much longer.
