Tigran Petrosian
They say my chess games should be more interesting. I could be more interesting - and also lose.
Petrosian quotes
I have a weakness for any piece in excess of my opponent's numbers - from pawn to queen.
Some consider that when I play I am excessively cautious, but it seems to me that the question may be a different one. I try to avoid chance. Those who rely on chance should play cards or roulette. Chess is something quite different.

Petrosian Tigran quotes
Chess is a game by its form, an art by its content and a science by the difficulty of gaining mastery in it. Chess can convey as much happiness as a good book or work of music can.
Petrosian Tigran
Petrosian was a player who spent more time considering his opponent’s possibilities than his own.
