Chess Quotes: Time E-mail
Time is precious when you dont have enough of it. ~ chess quote by Vladimir Kramnik

Time trouble is blunder time. ~ chess quote by  Alexander Kotov

A strong player requires only a few minutes of thought to get to the heart of the conflict. You see a solution immediately, and half an hour later merely convince yourself that your intuition has not deceived you. ~  chess quote by David Bronstein

Even when the time control has been reached, there is one situation where you want to act as if it has not: when your position is absolutely lost. ~ chess quote by Edmar Mednis

If your opponent is short (on time), play just as you played earlier in the game. If you are short keep calm, I repeat, don't get flustered. Keep up the same neat writing of the moves, the same methodical examination of variations, but at a quicker rate. ~ chess quote by Alexander Kotov

When my opponent's clock is going I discuss general considerations in an internal dialogue with myself. When my own clock is going I analyse conctrete variations.  ~ chess quote by Mikhail Botvinnik

The fact that the 7 hours time control allows us to play a great deep game is not of great importance for mass-media.  ~ chess quote by Alexei Shirov

Under no circumstances should you play fast if you have a winning position. Forget the clock, Use all your time and make good moves. ~ chess quote by Pal Benko

Bobby Fischer started off each game with a great advantage: after the opening he had used less time than his opponent and thus had more time available later on. The major reason why he never had serious time pressure was that his rapid opening play simply left sufficient time for the middlegame. ~ chess quote by Edmar Mednis

The art of treating the opening stage of the game correctly and without error is basically the art of using time efficiently. ~ chess quote by Svetozar Gligoric

The fact that a player is very short of time is to my mind, as little to be considered as an excuse as, for instance, the statement of the law-breaker that he was drunk at the time he committed the crime. ~ chess quote by Alexander Alekhine
