1 Chess is mental torture. Garry Kasparov
2 Look at Garry Kasparov. After he loses, invariably he wins the next game. He just kills the next guy. That’s something that we have to learn to be able to do. Maurice Ashley
3 When your house is on fire, you can't be bothered with the neighbors. Or, as we say in chess, if your king is under attack you don’t worry about losing a pawn on the queen’s side. Garry Kasparov
4 Botvinnik tried to take the mystery out of chess, always relating it to situations in ordinary life. He used to call chess a typical inexact problem similar to those which people are always having to solve in everyday life. Garry Kasparov
5 We like to think. Garry Kasparov
6 By this measure (on the gap between Fischer & his contemporaries), I consider him the greatest world champion. Garry Kasparov
7 Any experienced player knows how a change in the character of the play influences your psychological mood. Garry Kasparov
8 Attackers may sometimes regret bad moves, but it is much worse to forever regret an opportunity you allowed to pass you by. Garry Kasparov
9 All that now seems to stand between Nigel and the prospect of the world crown is the unfortunate fact that fate brought him into this world only two years after Kasparov. Garry Kasparov (prophetic comment in 1987)
10 Attackers may sometimes regret bad moves, but it is much worse to forever regret an opportunity you allowed to pass you by. Garry Kasparov
11 Boris Vasilievich was the only top-class player of his generation who played gambits regularly and without fear ... Over a period of 30 years he did not lose a single game with the King's Gambit, and among those defeated were numerous strong players of all generations, from Averbakh, Bronstein and Fischer, to Seirawan. Garry Kasparov
12 Botvinnik tried to take the mystery out of Chess, always relating it to situations in ordinary life. He used to call chess a typical inexact problem similar to those which people are always having to solve in everyday life. Garry Kasparov
13 By strictly observing Botvinnik's rule regarding the thorough analysis of one's own games, with the years I have come to realize that this provides the foundation for the continuous development of chess mastery. Garry Kasparov
14 By the time a player becomes a Grandmaster, almost all of his training time is dedicated to work on this first phase. The opening is the only phase that holds out the potential for true creativity and doing something entirely new. Garry Kasparov
15 Chess continues to advance over time, so the players of the future will inevitably surpass me in the quality of their play, assuming the rules and regulations allow them to play serious chess. But it will likely be a long time before anyone spends 20 consecutive years as number one, as I did. Garry Kasparov
16 Chess is a unique cognitive nexus, a place where art and science come together in the human mind and are refined and improved by experience. Garry Kasparov
17 Chess is far too complex to be definitively solved with any technology we can conceive of today. However, our looked-down-upon cousin, checkers, or draughts, suffered this fate quite recently thanks to the work of Jonathan Schaeffer at the University of Alberta and his unbeatable program Chinook. Garry Kasparov
18 Chess strength in general and chess strength in a specific match are by no means one and the same thing. Garry Kasparov
19 Enormous self-belief, intuition, the ability to take a risk at a critical moment and go in for a very dangerous play with counter-chances for the opponent - it is precisely these qualities that distinguish great players. Garry Kasparov
20 Excelling at chess has long been considered a symbol of more general intelligence. That is an incorrect assumption in my view, as pleasant as it might be. Garry Kasparov
21 Few things are as psychologically brutal as chess. Garry Kasparov
22 For me, chess is a language, and if it's not my native tongue, it is one I learned via the immersion method at a young age. Garry Kasparov
