"The right standpont is to play for pleasure - and do not think that
pleasure is proportionate to skill. The greatest bunglers are constantly
deriving the greatest pleasure from Chess - they go into ecstasies of
delight when their Knight forks a King and Queen.
I have always a slight feeling of pity for the man who has no knowledge of Chess,
just as I pity the man who has remained ignorant of love.
Chess, like love, like music, has the power to make men happy. The way
to this happiness I have tried to show in this book."
From 'The Game of Chess' by Siegbert Tarrasch. 1862 - 1934.
