Quote - 
"Chess teaches foresight, by having to plan ahead;  

vigilance, by having to keep watch over the whole chess

board; caution, by having to restrain ourselves from

making hasty moves; and finally, we learn from chess the

greatest maxim in life - that even when everything seems

 to be going badly for us we should not lose heart, but

always hoping for a change for the better, steadfastly

continue searching for the solutions to our problems."

Benjamin Franklin
