"Chess is a struggle and sport to me. But I feel the obviousness of chess as fusion of science and art... I am grateful to chess, first of all, because it helped me to understand myself more clearly, to choose my way in life..."
Gary Kasparov, Champion of the World
"Without a habit for independent work and objective assessment, a young chessplayer will inevitably encounter great difficulties when he find himself in a serious tournament."
Mikhail Botvinnik Champion of the World
