Chess has an enormous wealth: for those who practice this game is fascinating, but also serves as an inspiration to writers, artists, businessmen, journalists or politicians.
They have been said and written memorable phrases about chess: not only chess players like Fischer, Kasparov, Topalov, Steinitz, Tarrasch, Tartakower or Morozevich, but also intellectuals such as Fernando Arrabal, Cervantes, Duchamp, Borges, Einstein or Leibniz. There are smart phrases entrepreneurs and journalists, clever phrases politicians, scientists there are very enlightening, and some poets also very beautiful.
The phrases we have selected are tinged with wisdom, talent, pride, literary quality, common sense, irony and authenticity. Many of them are unpublished, and have grouped according to the issues that we thought of interest to the reader: "Victory", "Strategy and Tactics", "Psychology in chess," "Chess and new technologies", "The chess mysteries, "" chess and politics "...
We are convinced that only in this way can be seen, as in a multicolored prism, the complexity of meanings inherent in this wonderful game of chess.
