“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
