Translation: I am thanking you for this information is beautiful but I think this talent is not taught because it is the gift of God and can not be acquired

انا بشكركم على هذه المعلومه الجميله لكن اعتقد ان الموهبه هذه لا تدرس لانه هبه من عند الله ولا يمكن اكتسابها

Richard Meulders,

maybe it's not a motivator in a standard sense.. but what it means is that the outcome of the chess game is almost always decided by a skill and not by chance, especially on the highest level. There are exceptions of course, Carlsen got lucky against Nakamura recently ;-)

I'm not not sure about the relevance of the quote on chance. It's probably true, but I wouldn't call it a motivator.

What is lacking, and what in my opinion is very important, is 'Study your mistakes because you'll find you're always making the same ones'.

These are definitely an amazing piece of art... I'd love to see more of these posters! Much better than just plain and boring quotes!
