People are governed with the head; kindness of heart is little use in chess.
In chess one cannot control everything. Sometimes a game takes an unexpected turn, in which beauty begins to emerge. Both players are always instrumental in this.
She felt like a chess player who, by the clever handling of his pieces, sees the game taking the course intended. Her eyes were bright and tender with a smile as they glanced up into his; and her lips looked hungry for the kiss which they invited.
Chess can be described as the movement of pieces eating one another.
I look at improvising as a prolonged game of chess. There's an opening gambit with your pawn in a complex game I have with one character, and lots of side games with other characters, and another game with myself - and in each game you make all these tiny, tiny moves that get you to the endgame.
You sit at the board and suddenly your heart leaps. Your hand trembles to pick up the piece and move it. But what chess teaches you is that you must sit there calmly and think about whether it's really a good idea and whether there are other, better ideas.
In life, as in chess, forethought wins.
I am still a victim of chess. It has all the beauty of art - and much more. It cannot be commercialized. Chess is much purer than art in its social position.
Right now I'm really happy with how things are going with my chess career, so I'm not thinking of doing anything else.
Las Vegas is a beautiful place. I like it more and more and plan to be here often. It's a great place for chess.
Chess is mental torture.
There are too many Jews in chess. They seem to have taken away the class of the game. They don't seem to dress so nicely. That's what I don't like.
Chess is life.
Litigation is the pursuit of practical ends, not a game of chess.
Chess is an infinitely complex game, which one can play in infinitely numerous and varied ways.
There's a popular concept of 'intelligence' as book smarts, like calculus or chess, as opposed to, say, social skills. So people say that 'it takes more than intelligence to succeed in human society.' But social skills reside in the brain, not the kidneys.
Chess is intellectual gymnastics.
I went through a few phases of finding myself: I dabbled in musical theater, chess club, dance troupe, splatter-painting, school mascot (go Wildcats), babysitter, photojournalist, drill team girl, emo kid - and not one of them defined me, but every single one will always play a part in who I am.
If I'm home with no chore at hand, and a package of books has come, the television set and the chess board and the unanswered mail will have to manage without me if one of the books is a detective story.
Once you're a chess player, you spend a lot of time thinking about the game and you can't get it completely out of your head.
There is nothing that disgusts a man like getting beaten at chess by a woman.
Charles Dudley Warner
I believe every chess player senses beauty, when he succeeds in creating situations, which contradict the expectations and the rules, and he succeeds in mastering this situation.
I am convinced, the way one plays chess always reflects the player's personality. If something defines his character, then it will also define his way of playing.
Chess first of all teaches you to be objective.
I'm attracted to things that are in direct opposition to something that I've just done. It's not like I'm trying to make the right chess move. It's more just that personal thing where you get connected to something for so long and then you want to do something that's in opposition to that.
William Arthur Ward
