I’m not a chess player, but chess does run in my blood. My father loved the game and was a skilled player. All three of my children enjoy chess, and play with some success.
Maybe chess skips a generation.
At any rate, I appreciate chess and am familiar enough with the board and pieces that tonight I was able to create my own paper version. To reflect my theme of “words,” I planned to label each piece with its name: King, Queen, Rook, Pawn …
But while assembling the game, I realized the pieces need no identification. So I searched for quotes about chess and found one that speaks not just to chess, but to creativity as well.
