It's a delicatessen of games from the past century. Eat up before FTB does!

"Life is like a game of chess, changing with each move." ― Chinese Proverb

"Chess holds its master in its own bonds, shackling the mind and brain so that the inner freedom of the very strongest must suffer." ― Albert Einstein

"Chess is all about stored pattern recognition. You are asking your brain to spot a face in the crowd that it has not seen." ― Sally Simpson

"Chess does not drive people mad, it keeps mad people sane." ― Bill Hartston

"Chess is so inspiring that I do not believe a good player is capable of having an evil thought during the game." ― Wilhelm Steinitz

"It is a long-cherished tradition among a certain type of military thinker that huge casualties are the main thing. If they are on the other side then this is a valuable bonus." ― Terry Pratchett, Jingo

"Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake." ― Napoleon Bonaparte

"It is important that you don't let your opponent impose his style of play on you. A part of that begins mentally. At the chessboard if you start blinking every time he challenges you then in a certain sense you are withdrawing. That is very important to avoid." ― Viswanathan Anand

"Methodical thinking is of more use in chess than inspiration." ― C.J.S. Purdy

"Sometimes it's better to lose and do the right thing than to win and do the wrong thing." ― Tony Blair

"No one has ever won a game of chess by taking only forward moves. (Have you ever heard of Scholar's Mate?) Sometimes you have to move backwards in order to be able to take better steps forward. That is life." ― Anonymous

The Asz Dressed In The Lion's Skin

Clad in a lion's shaggy hide,
An asz spread terror far and wide,
And, though himself a zcoward brute,
Put all the world to scampering rout:
But, by a piece of evil luck,
A portion of an ear outstuck,
Which soon revealed the error
Of all the panic-terror.
Old Martin did his office quick.
Surprised were all who did not know the ztrick,
To see that Martin, at his will,
Was driving lions to the mill!

In France, the men are not a few
Of whom this fable proves too true;
Whose valour chiefly does reside
In coat they wear and horse they ride.

Drive sober or get pulled over.

Kasparov vs. Deep Blue; A Limerick
by Edward D. Collins

"Man versus Machine" it was billed
And each day the auditorium filled!
An interesting fight -
With Garry first to have White
Can anyone claim they weren't thrilled?
The first game proved Garry still King
"Deep Blue hasn't learned anything!"
Quickly out of its book
It later "won" Garry's Rook
Does this thing even belong in the ring?
But then Kasparov resigned in Game 2
And at the time nobody knew
Later shown he could draw
Did this stick in his craw?
Others may be wondering too!
"The printouts!" Kasparov cried
"Why was I so flatly denied?"
So they were then sealed
Only later revealed
One point each -- this match is now tied!
Games 3, 4, and 5 were all drawn
Deep Blue did indeed have some brawn!
It's now winner take all
So don't fumble the ball
(Or in our case don't fumble a pawn!)
Game 6 was the most startling yet
And I'm sure it cost many a bet
Deep Blue sacked a Knight
Quickly proved this was right
And so began all the talk on the "Net"
This chess match made worldwide news
And most thought that Deep Blue would lose
But with its three-and-a-half
If you do the math
You'll find Garry's the one with the "blues!"
No machine has done it 'till now
Bested our champion in match play -- kapow!
While few thought it would
Deep Blue proved that it could
And Garry is wondering "How?"
"I was not in the mood to fight"
Said the champ to the press that night
"But let this be clear"
"I guarantee -- do you hear?"
"I will tear it to pieces!" -- he might!
So, in New York on the eleventh of May
Of '97, the records will say
A machine, no less
Sat down to play chess
And proved that it really can play!
"Rematch" was then heard through the land
It is something we ALL should demand
For if Deep Blue will square-off
One more time with Kasparov
The games would be certainly grand!
We really have nothing to fear
Computers can help us, it's clear
And although Deep Blue won
And had its day in the sun
I think "chess" was the real winner here!

The Pattern?

Riddle: One is to three as three is to five and five is to four and four is the magic number. What is the pattern?

Answer: One has three letters in the word three has five letters in it five has four letters and four has four letters in it (if you try more numbers they will always come back to the number four: so four is the magic number)

The Road Not Taken
Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

"The most important single ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with people." ― Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States, and former U.S. Army Colonel

It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company...a church....a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude...I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you...we are in charge of our attitudes." ― Charles Swindoll

"There is no passion to be found playing small--in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living." ― Nelson Mandela

"If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much." ― Jim Rohn

"I've failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed." ― Michael Jordan

"The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams." ― Oprah Winfrey
