Famous quotes containing the word chess:
“Work, as we usually think of it, is energy expended for a further end in view; play is energy expended for its own sake, as with childrens play, or as manifestation of the end or goal of work, as in playing chess or the piano. Play in this sense, then, is the fulfillment of work, the exhibition of what the work has been done for.”
—Northrop Frye (19121991)
