1 In order to improve your game, you must study the endgame before everything else, for whereas the endings can be studied and mastered by themselves, the middlegame and the opening must be studied in relation to the endgame. Jose Raul Capablanca
2 A passed pawn increases in strength as the number of pieces on the board diminishes. Capablanca
3 Chess was Capablanca’s mother tongue. Reti
4 Chess books should be used as we use glasses : to assist the sight, although some players make use of them as if they thought they conferred sight. Jose Raul Capablanca
5 As one by one I mowed them down, my superiority soon became apparent. Jose Capablanca
6 You may learn much more from a game you lose than from a game you win. You will have to lose hundreds of games before becoming a good player. Jose Raul Capablanca
7 A good player is always lucky. Jose Raul Capablanca
8 If chess is an art, Alekhine. If chess is a science, Capablanca. If chess is a struggle, Lasker. --on who he thought was the best player. Savielly Tartakower
9 Although the Knight is generally considered to be on a par with the Bishop in strength, the latter piece is somewhat stronger in the majority of cases in which they are opposed to each other. Jose Capablanca
10 But alas! Like many another consummation devoutly to be wished, the actual performance was a disappointing one. (on the long awaited Lasker-Capablanca match in 1921) Fred Reinfeld
11 Capablanca did not apply himself to opening theory (in which he never therefore achieved much), but delved deeply into the study of end-games and other simple positions which respond to technique rather than to imagination. Max Euwe
12 Chess can never reach its height by following in the path of science ... Let us, therefore, make a new effort and with the help of our imagination turn the struggle of technique into a battle of ideas. Jose Capablanca
13 Chess is something more than a game. It is an intellectual diversion which has certain artistic qualities and many scientific elements. Jose Capablanca
14 Endings of one rook and pawns are about the most common sort of endings arising on the chess board. Yet though they do occur so often, few have mastered them thoroughly. They are often of a very difficult nature, and sometimes while apparently very simple they are in reality extremely intricate. Jose Capablanca
15 Excellent ! I will still be in time for the ballet ! Jose Capablanca (upon defeating Ossip Bernstein in the famous 29 move exhibition game played in Moscow in 1914, before setting off to the Bolshoi Theatre in horse-drawn carriage)
16 For my victory over Capablanca I am indebted primarily to my superiority in the field of psychology. Capablanca played, relying almost exclusively on his rich intuitive talent. But for the chess struggle nowadays one needs a subtle knowledge of human nature, an understanding of the opponent's psychology. Alexander Alekhine
