Chess Quotes

"The technician, whose vocabulary has been doubled by Dr. Euwe, will find that White could have saved his soul by a desperado combination. Had this failure anything to do with the fact that Dr. Euwe's terminology was not yet existent at that time!?"
— Reinfeld, to Thomas-Euwe, Carlsbad 1929.
