I think the different quotes popping up, enhance the site immeasureably. It's good that they are not all chess related, here are some more metaphysical offerings from my favourite film - 'Waking life' "Life is a matter of a miracle that is collected over time by moments flabbergasted to be in each others presence." “The quest is to be liberated from the negative, which is really our own will to nothingness…To say yes to one instant is to say yes to all of existence.” "Whatever you do, don’t be bored. This is absolutely the most exciting time we could have possibly hoped to be alive. And things are just starting.” Has anyone seen it? Peace, nick burrows.

A quote

Not mine, but something you can use:

sun tzu

yeah funnily i was reading Phil Gordons little green book of poker today and he inserts a few quotes by sun-tzu. 'In war, then, your great object is victory, not lengthy campaigns.' 'To secure ourselves against defeat lies in our own hands, but the opportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself.' 'Supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting.'

I see you found the brainyquote web site. I like a lot of the Greek Philosopher quotes:

All paid jobs absorb and degrade the mind. Aristotle.

I don't need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better. Plutarch.

The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled. Plutarch.
