“The Game of Chess is not merely an idle amusement; several very valuable qualities of the mind, useful in the course of human life, are to be acquired and strengthened by it, so as to become habits ready on all occasions; for life is kind of Chess in which we have often 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 want of it.” — Benjamin Franklin
