… is mental torture. Kasparov

… is a war over the board. The object is to crush the opponent’s mind. Fischer

… is a foolish expedient for making idle people believe they are doing something very clever, when they are only wasting their time. ” ― George Bernard Shaw, The Irrational Knot

… is the art which expresses the science of logic. Botvinnik

… is, above all, a fight. Lasker

It is difficult to play against Einstein’s theory. – Tal (on his first loss to Fischer)
