Checkers And Chess quotes by Alexander Kotov
#1. Once in a Moscow chess club I saw how two first-category players knocked pieces off the board as they were exchanged, so that the pieces fell onto the floor. It was as if they were playing skittles and not chess! #Quote by Alexander Kotov
Checkers And Chess quotes by Jennifer DuBois
#2. Thinking more than a move ahead never got me anywhere in life. Only in chess. And even then it was sometimes a burden. I saw fifteen moves ahead once, in Norway, but there was a much easier path to victory, and I missed it. Looking into the future too hard, I've found can be paralyzing. #Quote by Jennifer DuBois
Checkers And Chess quotes by Barney Chavous
#3. Chess is a very positive way to exercise your mind. It makes you look at the whole picture ... what are your options and what is the best thing to do? In football, you are mostly reacting from a defensive point of view ... but you always want to be counterattacking ... a similarity with chess strategy. Chess and offensive football are quite similar; you sacrifice something now to get something back later. #Quote by Barney Chavous
Checkers And Chess quotes by Roman Dzindzichashvili
#4. Now I have the pawn and the compensation. #Quote by Roman Dzindzichashvili
Checkers And Chess quotes by Judit Polgar
#5. In chess the most unbelievable thing for me is that it's a game for everybody: rich, poor, girl, boy, old, young. It's a fantastic game which can unite people and generations! It's a language which you'll find people "speak" in every country. If you reach a certain level you find a very rich world! Art, sport, logic, psychology, a battlefield, imagination, creativity not only in practical games but don't forget either how amazing a feeling it is to compose a study, for example (unfortunately that's not appreciated these days but it's a fantastic part of chess!). #Quote by Judit Polgar
Checkers And Chess quotes by Kristin Cast
#6. Do vampyres play chess? Were there vampyre dorks? How about Barbie-like vampyre cheerleaders? Did any vampyres play in the band? Were there vampyre Emos with their guy-wearing-girl's-pants weirdness and those awful bangs that cover half their faces? Or were they all those freaky Goth kids who didn't like to bathe much? Was I going to turn into a Goth kid? Or worse, an Emo? I didn't particularly like wearing black, at least not exclusively, and I wasn't feeling a sudden and unfortunate aversion to soap and water, nor did I have an obsessive desire to change my hairstyle and wear too much eyeliner. #Quote by Kristin Cast
Checkers And Chess quotes by Hermann Hesse
#7. At that time two opposing concepts of the Game called forth commentary and discussion. The foremost players distinguished two principal types of Game, the formal and the psychological. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Checkers And Chess quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#8. The man who has learned that three plus one are four doesn't have to go through a proof of that assertion with coins, or dice, or chess pieces, or pencils. He knows it, and that's that. He cannot conceive a different sum. There are mathematicians who say that three plus one is a tautology for four, a different way of saying "four" ... If three plus one can be two, or fourteen, then reason is madness. #Quote by Jorge Luis Borges
Checkers And Chess quotes by Stacia Kane
#9. With magic almost anything was possible; all objects had energy, and energy could be manipulated. #Quote by Stacia Kane
Checkers And Chess quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#10. War is like a game of chess ... but with this little difference, that in chess you may think over each move as long as you please and are not limited for time, and with this difference too, that a knight is always stronger than a pawn, and two pawns are always stronger than one, while in war a battalion is sometimes stronger than a division and sometimes weaker than a company. The relative strength of bodies of troops can never be known to anyone ... Success never depends, and never will depend, on position, or equipment, or even on numbers, and least of all on position. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Checkers And Chess quotes by Anatoly Karpov
#11. Playing black, I put great stake in the Ruy Lopez: I liked it, feel it, and understand it; in matches with Hjartarson and Timman it served me well. - on preparing for World Championship versus Garry Kasparov #Quote by Anatoly Karpov
Checkers And Chess quotes by Martha Stout
#12. And so without our primordial attachments to others, what would we be?
Evidently, we would be the players of a game, one that resembled a giant chess match, with our fellow human beings as the rooks, the knights, and the pawns. For this is the essence of sociopathic behavior, and desire. #Quote by Martha Stout
Checkers And Chess quotes by Rumi
#13. We are as pieces of chess engaged in victory and defeat! ... #Quote by Rumi
Checkers And Chess quotes by Bobby Fischer
#14. My sister bought me a set at a candy store and taught me the moves. #Quote by Bobby Fischer
Checkers And Chess quotes by Alexander Alekhine
#15. Playing for complications is an extreme measure that a player should adopt only when he cannot find a clear and logical plan. #Quote by Alexander Alekhine
Checkers And Chess quotes by Deyth Banger
#16. Today, some chess games can't go in 40 minutes. One game not every time can finish fast, sometimes it's difficult to win and the ways are odd. #Quote by Deyth Banger
Checkers And Chess quotes by Anatoly Karpov
#17. As a personality, I'm fighter, you know. And I don't give up, and if I believe I'm correct, I'm right, then I work, and I fight. Okay, this could be over a chess board, this could be in life, and so I defend my principles. #Quote by Anatoly Karpov
Checkers And Chess quotes by Viet Thanh Nguyen
#18. We had not chosen to be debased by the French, to be divided by them into an unholy trinity of north, center, and south, to be turned over to the great powers of capitalism and communism for a further bisection, then given roles as the clashing armies of a Cold War chess match played in air-conditioned rooms by white men wearing suits and lies. No, #Quote by Viet Thanh Nguyen
Checkers And Chess quotes by Marcel Duchamp
#19. The Chess pieces are the block alphabet which shapes thoughts; and these thoughts, although making a visual design on the chessboard, express their beauty abstractly, like a poem #Quote by Marcel Duchamp
Checkers And Chess quotes by Sergei Shipov
#20. The machine does not teach playing flexibility, does not help in taking account of human facxtors in the battle, and on whole, strictly speaking, it restricts the possibilities for young players. #Quote by Sergei Shipov
Checkers And Chess quotes by Stacia Kane
#21. It was her problem, and she'd deal with it. Because dealing with personal problems was so fucking high on her list of skills. #Quote by Stacia Kane
Checkers And Chess quotes by Pat Ament
#22. When you ride your bike, you're working your legs, but your mind is on a treadmill. When you play chess, your mind is clicking along, but your body is stagnating. Climbing brings it together in a beautiful, magical way. The adrenaline is flowing, and it's flowing all the time. #Quote by Pat Ament
Checkers And Chess quotes by Richard Reti
#23. Most chess players know, thanks to the study of master games, that two bishops are stronger than two knights or than bishop and knight, though very few know the reason for this advantage and how to turn it to account. #Quote by Richard Reti
Checkers And Chess quotes by Atul Gawande
#24. And it works. There have now been many studies of elite performers - international violinists, chess grand masters, professional ice-skaters, mathematicians, and so forth - and the biggest difference researchers find between them and lesser performers is the cumulative amount of deliberate practice they've had. Indeed, the most important talent may be the talent for practice itself. K. Anders Ericsson, a cognitive psychologist and expert on performance, notes that the most important way in which innate factors play a role may be in one's willingness to engage in sustained training. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Checkers And Chess quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#25. I will, therefore, take occasion to assert that the higher powers of the reflective intellect are more decidedly and more usefully tasked by the unostentatious game of draughts than by a the elaborate frivolity of chess. #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
Checkers And Chess quotes by Jose Raul Capablanca
#26. Most players ... do not like losing, and consider defeat as something shameful. This is a wrong attitude. Those who wish to perfect themselves must regard their losses as lessons and learn from them what sorts of things to avoid in the future. #Quote by Jose Raul Capablanca
Checkers And Chess quotes by Ray Bradbury
#27. Over the years, they had destroyed all of him, removing hands, arms, and legs and leaving him with substitutes as delicate and useless as chess pieces. And now they were tampering with something more intangible
the memory; they were trying to cut the wires which led back into another year. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Checkers And Chess quotes by Dennis Postema
#28. In many cases the presentation is like a game of chess. You make a move only to have the customer respond with another move. The person who makes the smartest moves wins the game. Your goal is to be the one who outsmarts the competitor and actually brings in the sale. This is most easily accomplished when you match every question and concern with an honest and thought-provoking answer. If left with nothing else to wonder, worry over or complain about, the customer has no choice but to buy. The big question is: are you up for the rigors of the game? #Quote by Dennis Postema
Checkers And Chess quotes by Jennifer Shahade
#29. If there were a 1:1 ratio of women and men in the chess world I would agree that all tournaments should be integrated. But a lot of women feel alienated at these mixed events, so it's positive to have occasional all women's events. #Quote by Jennifer Shahade
Checkers And Chess quotes by J.K. Rowling
#30. Chess was the only thing Hermione ever lost at, something Harry and Ron thought was very good for her. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Checkers And Chess quotes by Fred Reinfeld
#31. One interesting indication of Capablanca's greatness is that to non-chess players his name was better known than the names of all other chess masters together! This was due partly to his engaging personality and distinguished appearance: he was one of those exceptional people who at once stand out in a crowd. #Quote by Fred Reinfeld
Checkers And Chess quotes by Siegbert Tarrasch
#32. A form of intellectual productiveness, therein lies its peculiar charm. Intellectual productiveness is one of the greatest joys - if not the greatest one - of human existence. It is not everyone who can write a play, or build a bridge, or even make a good joke. But in chess everyone can, everyone must be intellectually productive, and so can share in this select delight. I have always a slight feeling of pity for the man who has no knowledge of chess, just as I would pity the man who has remained ignorant of love. Chess, like love, like music, has the power to make men happy. #Quote by Siegbert Tarrasch
Checkers And Chess quotes by Jalaluddin Rumi
#33. I'm drenched
in the flood
which has yet to come

I'm tied up
in the prison
that has yet to exist

Not having played
the game of chess
I'm already the checkmate

Not having tasted
a single cup of your wine
I'm already drunk

Not having entered
the battlefield
I'm already wounded and slain

I no longer
know the difference
between image and reality

Like the shadow
I am
and
I am not #Quote by Jalaluddin Rumi
Checkers And Chess quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#34. Konstantin Levin regarded his brother as a man of immense intellect and culture, as generous in the highest sense of the word, and possessed of a special faculty for working for the public good. But in the depths of his heart, the older he became, and the more intimately he knew his brother, the more and more frequently the thought struck him that this faculty of working for the public good, of which he felt himself utterly devoid, was possibly not so much a quality as a lack of something - not a lack of good, honest, noble desires and tastes, but a lack of vital force, of what is called heart, of that impulse which drives a man to choose someone out of the innumerable paths of life, and to care only for that one. The better he knew his brother, the more he noticed that Sergey Ivanovitch, and many other people who worked for the public welfare, were not led by an impulse of the heart to care for the public good, but reasoned from intellectual considerations that it was a right thing to take interest in public affairs, and consequently took interest in them. Levin was confirmed in this generalization by observing that his brother did not take questions affecting the public welfare or the question of the immortality of the soul a bit more to heart than he did chess problems, or the ingenious construction of a new machine. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Checkers And Chess quotes by Gemma Files
#35. Morrow's rush of disgust, temporary as it might prove, had nothing to do with the truths-turned-insults flung out. No. What riled Morrow ran far deeper - was the sheer perversity of Chess's own nature, that unbreakable wilfulness he'd always revered in himself, as sign and source of his own freedom. His stark refusal ever to be bound, to obey aught but his own whim and want.

Because while he could walk free and hold a gun Chess Pargeter answered to no man - no man, no law, no damn body, motherfucker. No ideal, no cause, no force but sheer chaos, bound and determined to move unimpeded and burn for the sake of burning. To never submit himself to ghost or hex or priest or even God, 'less he damn well wanted to.

No man except Ash Rook, that was - for a time. And after this last betrayal, from now on... not even him.

'Course not, Morrow's anger spoke back, unimpressed by Chess's well-tuned inner litany. That's 'cause you're nothing but a brat who never grew up - a skillet-hopping little hot-pants who knows everything 'bout killing and nothing at all 'bout living. Who spits on friendship, duty and honour not 'cause he's above them, so much as 'cause he don't know what they even mean - same way you don't really grasp how anything's real, 'cept if you want it, or it hurts you. And that's why you ended up givin' everything you had to a man who skinned you alive, then left you stranded down in Hell - 'cause he was what you wanted, and Christ forbid Ches #Quote by Gemma Files
Checkers And Chess quotes by Deyth Banger
#36. Why people like to be kicked and punched in the face. The game is famous as box??
What's the inspiring thing??
Do you know that every punch in the head you lose a cell or cells so it's possible in the near future all boxer to be stupid. Why??
Because of the punches!
...
But still I don't see where is the Adrenaline in this sport?? There are random punches or kickes without thinking just dicide it to do it for fun. But in games like chess there is strategy + logic! #Quote by Deyth Banger
