    From "AUSTRALIAN CHESS - into the eighties" by Ian Rogers (1981).

    Guy West: "He [Ian Rogers] is a walking encyclopaedia of obscure gambits, little-knowns themes, brilliant new moves - and their refutations. His excellent theoretical preparation also extends to middlegame positions and most endings." (Page 11)

    Douglas Hamilton: "When one is short of time with a bad position, one move threats are attractive!" (Page 24)

    Robert Jamieson: "Chess is an eternal struggle against one's own stupidity!" (Page 81)

    I recently found out that when he was being praised after winning his famous game against von Bardeleben at the age of 59, Steinitz said:

    Alas, it is a game of my younger days.

    "Chess is a game by its form, an art by its content and a science by the difficulty of gaining mastery in it. Chess can convey as much happiness as a good book or work of music can. However, it is necessary to learn to play well and only afterwards will one experience real delight." – Tigran Petrosian.
