Chess Quotes

I have a quote I would like to share by an average tournament player.

  After 3 dismal rounds, losing to three lower-rated players, he withdraws from the January Swiss. He appears an hour later, I asked him what brings you back. He states:

"I not only lost my shirt at this tournament, but I left my coat as well."
