Guidobaldo del Monte Emanuel Lasker Vincenzo Riccati


A quotation for today

Emanuel Lasker (1868 - 1941)

On the chessboard, lies and hypocrisy do not survive long. The creative combination lays bare the presumption of a lie; the merciless fact, culminating in the checkmate, contradicts the hypocrite.

A Manual of Chess (London 1932)

Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
