Quotes Of The Day (from Kelly Atkins)

"Chess is, after all, one of the greatest intellectual challenges devised by Man and its supreme prize should be decided by who can out-think his opponent, not by who can shift wood fastest and punch the clock quickest in a blitz finish." Tim Harding

"The point is that chess doesn't have a strict criterion of correctness. Chess is a multiform game!" Bent Larsen
