The Amateur Eye -64 square world

Lately the news has followed the Russian leader Valdimir Putin with very little understanding of what makes him tick.  One of his favorite thoughts about chess: “Chess  makes man wiser and clear-sighted.”  If he himself is so wise, then he should not leave out the female species!  He would definitely run into crowds of protesters in America and all freedom loving peoples round the world including his own turf.

While I am at it, here are some more quotes for the inquisitive. GM Maurice Ashley calls chess, “a brutal game.”  In Brooklyn the sport is played in the parks with music blaring out the vocal trash of onlookers and players.  His advice for those who suffer the pangs of defeat is simply this: “Play better chess.”

Derek Carr, the Oakland Raiders star quarterback, compares his sport with chess: It is a big chess game. It really is. You go out there knowing the rules, input from coaches to play to the best of your abilities and training.

The US comedian Emo Phillips noted that a computer defeated him in a chess game. I like to play chess with bald men in the park, although it is hard to find them anywhere but on the board.

Pierre Mac Orlan, the French novelist and songwriter, says there are more adventures on the chessboard than on all the seas of the world.

Albert Einstein once said of chess: ” I always disliked the fierce competitive spirit embodied in chess.”

Finally, I am in mind of what included in his writings: “Ridicule can do much, for instance, embitter the existence of young talents.”

World Chess Champ Magnus Carlsen  said the match with the Russian, Sergey Karjakin was the toughest of his three title defenses.

Adios for now!!

    just needed to ask. Thanks!

      Welcome. Best advice is to not open emails as that is the easiest route for hackers to put a worm in your computer. The big danger is that it can be left inactive to be activated at the hacker’s pleasure. Be yourself. Honest and things that you enjoy, others will likely enjoy or find educational. Good luck. I use which is a free site and they have an excellent help desk for assistance.-Don.
