    Selected Chess Quotes

    never underestimate your opponent

    Play shrewdly, and the victory will be waiting for you in the end.

    Mastery takes time; and time requires patience.

    A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing. -Emo Phillips

    "A man with one clock knows what time it is. A man with two clocks is playing chess."

    At the end of the game, the king and the pawn go into the same box....

    What's important is not winning the game but making the opponent loose

    White is not an adwantage, that just means he is one step closer to lose.

    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!

    THE MOST DECENT WAY OF DEFEATING SOMEONE IS CHECKMATE

    Focus is the key to winning any chess game

    "It is always better to sacrifice your opponents men"


    People are like pawns, if they fight on and contine to the end, then they can become anything.

    All the mistakes are there, waiting to be played!

    life is like chess, 1 wrong move and your game is all messed up....

    -General D. MacArthur

    "By some ardent enthusiasts, chess has been elevated into a science or an art. It is neither; but its principal characteristic seems to be what human nature most delights in - a fight"
    -Emanuel Lasker

    The "bishop" came to my church today.... that guy was an imposter, he never once moved diagonally.
    -ANON

    I had lunch with a chess champion the other day. I knew he was a chess champion because it took him 20 minutes to pass the salt.

    WAR: STRATEGY & TACTICS
    Have no doubt about it;
    the game of chess is a little war.
    With two armies beginning in formation, battlefield between, it's kill-or-be-killed.
    Like the general of an army, you might want to consider the concepts of strategy and
    tactics.


    Tactics deal with the organization and control of pieces engaged in combat.
    It's the move-by-move, play-by-play. Also known as precise thinking,
    tactics primarily uses the "I take her, then she takes me" form of thinking,
    which should be an on-going process.


    Strategy, on the other hand, deals with achieving victory through long-range planning.
    It's the big picture.
    The specific maneuvers of a battle are important,
    but every once in a while remind yourself to step back and take it all in,
    thinking not only of individual soldiers but also of a unified army,
    where it's going, and what it wants to achieve.
    A blending of both tactics and strategy will help you to emerge victorious.
