"It is hardly useful if you trustingly play through variation after variation from a book. It is a great deal more useful and more interesting if you take part actively in the analysis, find something yourself, and try to refute some of the author's conclusions."

- Mark Dvoretsky

“If Chess is a science, it’s a most inexact one. If Chess is an art, it is too exacting to be seen as one. If Chess is a sport, it’s too esoteric. If Chess is a game, it’s too demanding to be just a game. If Chess is a mistress, she is without mercy. If Chess is a passion, it’s a rewarding one. If Chess is life, it’s a sad one.”

- Unknown

"When a chess player looks at the board, he does not see a static mosaic, a 'still life', but a magnetic field of forces, charged with energy - as Faraday saw the stresses surrounding magnets and currents as curves in space; or as Van Gogh saw vortices in the skies of Provence."

-  Arthur Koestler

"I don’t know whether computers are improving the style of play, I know they are changing it. Chess has become a different game, one could say that computers have changed the world of chess. That is pretty clear."
