Interesting Chess Quotes

Top chess players of the world have given thousands of chess quotes just to enlighten us about the game. It is very tough to pick the best out of thousands of chess quotes. Here, I am giving you a very interesting list.

1 “When the game is over, the king and the pawn go into the same box” -Italian proverb.

2. “In life, as in chess, forethought wins” -Charles Buxter

3. “You must take your opponent into a deep dark forest where 2+2=5, and the path leading out is only wide enough for one” -Tal
4. "Tal doesn't move the pieces by hand, he uses a magic wand” - Viacheslav Ragozin.

Capablanca had given many great quotes. I have selected quote below.

5. “An hour’s history of two minds is well told in a game of chess" - Capablanca.

6. “Through chess I developed my character. Chess first of all teaches you to be objective. You can become a big master in chess only if you see your mistakes and shortcomings. Exactly the same as in life itself” -Alekhine.

7. “Even the laziest king flees wildly in the face of double check” -Nimzowitsch.

8. “Chess helps you to concentrate, improve your logic. It teaches you to play by the rules and take responsibility for your actions, how to problem solve in an uncertain environment” -Kasparov. 

I would like to end this list by my favorite quote.
