    Actually in all seriousness, chess i think is empty. The biggest mistake i have made is to search for depth in it, there is to my mind none.

    Chess is life. Just when you think you have it figured out, it sneaks up and bites you on the ass.

    Chess is what you make of it. It can be a hobby in passing, a passion, a fixation, an infatuation. You get out of it what you put into it, Chess is everything and it is nothing at the same time.

    “Poets do not go mad; but chess-players do. Mathematicians go mad, and cashiers; but creative artists very seldom. I am not, as will be seen, in any sense attacking logic: I only say that this danger does lie in logic, not in imagination.”
