Aron Nimzowitsch said about chess:
  • The passed pawn is a criminal who should be kept under lock and key. Mild measures, such as police surveillance, are not sufficient.
  • The threat is stronger than the execution.
  • First restrain, next blockade, lastly destroy.
  • Do not always be thinking of attack! Moves that safeguard your position are often far more prudent.
  • The beauty of a move lies not in its appearance but in the thought behind it.
  • No pawn exchanges, no file-opening, no attack.
