A pawn's rebellion.
The pawns are the soul of chess.
Chess is mental torture.
For me, art and chess are closely related, both are forms in which the self finds beauty and expression.
Even a poor plan is better than no plan at all.
The tactician knows what to do when there is something to do; whereas the strategian knows what to do when there is nothing to do.
The slowness of genius is hard to bear. But the slowness of mediocrity is intolerable.
Henry Thomas Buckle
Chess is the art which expresses the science of logic.
