Quotes for the Thinking

Sophie Kinsella:  Relationships are a battle. They are a chess game.  And what did I do?? I just threw all my chess pieces on the board at once, and said, “Here! Have them all!”

Thought of the Day comes from Stanley Kubrick: “Among the great many other things that chess teaches you is to control the initial excitement you feel when you see something that looks good.  It trains you to think before grabbing, and to think just as objectively when you’re in trouble.”

Pal Benko maybe said it best:  “Every move in the endgame is of the utmost importance because you are closer to the moment of truth.”
