Who can people count on when the goin' gets tough? Who keeps thy word? Talk is cheap when times are good.

"Chess is life in miniature. Chess is a struggle, chess battles." — Garry Kasparov

"You can only get good at chess if you love the game." — Bobby Fischer

"What is the object of playing a Gambit opening? To acquire a reputation of being a dashing player at the cost of losing a game." — Siegbert Tarrasch

"Do the things that interest you and do them with all your heart. Don't be concerned about whether people are watching you or criticizing you. The chances are that they aren't paying any attention to you. It's your attention to yourself that is so stultifying. But you have to disregard yourself as completely as possible. If you fail the first time then you'll just have to try harder the second time. After all, there's no real reason why you should fail. Just stop thinking about yourself." — Eleanor Roosevelt

"It doesn't require much for misfortune to strike in the King's Gambit, one incautious move, and Black can be on the edge of the abyss." — Anatoly Karpov

To Madame De Montespan

The apologue is from the immortal gods;
Or, if the gift of man it is,
Its author merits apotheosis.
Whoever magic genius lauds
Will do what in him lies
To raise this art's inventor to the skies.
It has the potence of a charm,
On dulness lays a conquering arm,
Subjects the mind to its control,
And works its will on the soul.
O lady, armed with equal power,
If ever within celestial bower,
With messmate gods reclined,
My muse ambrosially has dined,
Lend me the favour of a smile
On this her playful toil.
If you support, the tooth of time will shun,
And let my work the envious years outrun.
If authors would themselves survive,
To gain your suffrage they should strive.
On you my verses wait to get their worth;
To you my beauties all will owe their birth, – For beauties you will recognize
Invisible to other eyes.
Ah! who can boast a taste so true,
Of beauty or of grace,
In either thought or face?
For words and looks are equal charms in you.
On a theme so sweet, the truth to tell,
My muse would gladly dwell:
But this employ to others I must yield; –
A greater master claims the field.
For me, fair lady, it were enough
Your name should be my wall and roof.
Protect henceforth the favoured book
Through which for second life I look.
In your auspicious light,
These lines, in envy's spite,
Will gain the glorious meed,
That all the world shall read.
It's not that I deserve such fame; –
I only ask in Fable's name,
(You know what credit that should claim;)
And, if successfully I sue,
A fane will be to Fable due, –
A thing I would not build – except for you.

"The game of chess is not just an idle amusement. Several very valuable qualities of the mind, useful in the course of human life, are to be acquired or strengthened by it… Life is a kind of Chess, in which we have often pointed to gain, and competitors or adversaries to contend with." – Benjamin Franklin

pe is a complete jerk through and through and proud of it. pe're incapable of respect, nor would I want such from such an @#$%*@!. pe can hurl your cliches and insults but you rarely mount an argument because you know you're on the wrong side of the facts. Once again, you mischaracterize me with a completely contrived narrative on your part that has nothing to do with the topic. You just make crap up.

Lichess has all the same basic offerings as Chess.com: a large community, many game types, tutorials, puzzles, and livestreams. The site has a simple appearance, and it seems built to get you where you want to go in as few clicks as possible. You can create an account, but if you're not concerned with tracking your games and finding other players at your level, there's no need to log in. Just fire up a new game, try some puzzles, or watch a chess streamer play three-minute games while listening to techno and chatting with the comments section.
