Chess Openings

Famous quotes containing the words chess and/or openings:

    It’s a great huge game of chess that’s being played—all over the world—if this is the world at all, you know. Oh, what fun it is! How I wish I was one of them! I wouldn’t mind being a Pawn, if only I might join—though of course I should like to be a Queen, best.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    There are a thousand unnoticed openings ... which let a penetrating eye at once into a man’s soul; and I maintain ... that a man of sense does not lay down his hat in coming into a room,—or take it up in going out of it, but something escapes, which discovers him.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)
