Chess Quotes

I have formulated a rule for myself which I call the principle of the worst piece:
"In positions of strategic manoeuvring (where time is not of decisive importance) seek the worst-placed piece. Activating that piece is often the most reliable way of improving your position as a whole."
— Mark DVORETSKY & Artur Yusupov, Positional Play [and see below!]
