Chess Quotes: Strategy E-mail
Openings teach you openings. Endgames teach you chess! ~ chess quote by Stephan Gerzadowicz


Strategy requires thought, tactics require observation. ~ chess quote by Max Euwe


The separation of Strategy and Tactics is like the separation between Space and Time. There really isn't a difference, but it sure makes it easier to talk about them. ~ chess quote by Jason Varsoke


You must be able to handle a variety of move orders during the first 5-6 moves - otherwise you'll find yourself 'tricked' time and time again. ~ chess quote by Edmar Mednis


Only play into a variation in which your opponent is strong if you have your own personal novelty ready! ~ chess quote by Edmar Mednis


Play on both sides of the board is my favourite strategy. ~ chess quote by Alexander Alekhine


Strategy requires thought, tactics require observation. ~ chess quote by Max Euwe


Chess strategy as such today is still in its diapers, despite Tarrasch's statement 'We live today in a beautiful time of progress in all fields'. Not even the slightest attempt has been made to explore and formulate the laws of chess strategy. ~ chess quote by Aaron Nimzowitsch


When Alekhine recognizes the weakness in his position he has a tendency to become very aggressive. Patient defence is not for him if he can see the slightest chance of creating an attack. Yet sound strategy often demands that you submit to the opponent's will so as to strengthen your weaknesses and get rid of defects in your game. ~ chess quote by Emanuel Lasker
