Chess Quotes

" "There are no hopeless positions;
there are only inferior positions that can be saved.

  There are no drawn positions;
there are only equal ones in which you can play for a win.

  But at the same time, don't forget that there is no such thing as a won position
in which it is impossible to lose.
"

— Grigory SANAKOEV (via Peter Lane)
