Quote – “Life is a kind of Chess, in which we have points to gain, and competitors or adversaries to contend with, and in which there is a vast variety of good and ill events, that are, in some degree the effect of prudence, or the want of it."

- Benjamin Franklin, 1750

- collected from the book “Reality Check” by Alisa Melehkina

SEE YOU AT THE CLUB FOR MORE CHESS FUN !!


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
