The fact that the game of chess, this wondrous gift from the morning country, not only the noblest and most beautiful of all plays are, but also, standing for art and science at the border of play, to which largest mental benefits belongs, each chess player will gladly confirm this statement.

It has only some error that it is to be learned very with difficulty.

The actual, finest attraction of the game of chess lies in the fact that one is mentally productively active thereby. Chess has like the love or like the music the ability to make humans lucky.

Dr. Siegbert Tarrasch (1862-1934).
