Chess Quotes

If I had not been the son of well-off parents, I could hardly have allowed myself the luxury (and such it is) of sacrificing my time for chess. However, I was happy enough to be it, and, because I love chess (as I do theater and film by the way), I was able to - I’d almost say - waste a large part of my time and energy on it. Chess professionalism as such is an impossible business and should, in fact, be forbidden. So much for my attitude towards chess. Aaron Nimzowitsch
