When neither party can give checkmate, the game is drawn. Howard Staunton
If I allow the fact that I am a Negro to checkmate my will to do, now, I will inevitably form the habit of being defeated. Paul Williams
If you look at the democratic process as a game of chess, there have to be many, many moves before you get to checkmate. And simply because you do not make any checkmate in three moves does not mean it's stalemate. There's a vast difference between no checkmate and stalemate. This is what the democratic process is like. Aung San Suu Kyi
Whoever sees no other aim in the game than that of giving checkmate to one's opponent will never become a good Chess player. Max Euwe
