Yes, and I take upon myself all those responsibilities which an art imposes on its adherents  (Alexander Alekhine Quotes) I have had to work long and hard to eradicate the dangerous delusion that, in a bad position, I could always, or nearly always, conjure up some unexpected combination to extricate me from my difficulties  (Alexander Alekhine Quotes) I think that for the highest achievements nowadays... need to have the stable as a rock scientific base. And also need to own modesty  (Alexander Alekhine Quotes) In my opinion, a master is morally obliged to seize every sort of opportunity and to try to solve the problems of the position without fear of some simplifications  (Alexander Alekhine Quotes) During a chess tournament a master must envisage himself as a cross between an ascetic monk and a beast of prey  (Alexander Alekhine Quotes) The retreat of a minor piece to the back rank, where it cuts the lines of communication between the rooks, is permissable only in exceptional cases  (Alexander Alekhine Quotes) Playing for complications is an extreme measure that a player should adopt only when he cannot find a clear and logical plan  (Alexander Alekhine Quotes) Young players expose themselves to grave risks when they blindly imitate the innovations of masters without themselves first checking all the details and consequences of these innovations  (Alexander Alekhine Quotes) Capablanca was snatched too early from the chess world.
