"You know, when you achieve something in Norway, well, you're not supposed to get above yourself. This is especially big in my country, that you- how do I explain this? - that you're not supposed to think you're better than anyone else only because you had success in some field, and you will always find someone ready to point this out to you in Norway." - GM Magnus Carlsen
"Critics are men who watch a battle from a high place, then come down and shoot the survivors." - Ernest Hemingway
