Jess [to Schmidt]: You’re like aging ballerina, child chess prodigy, old magician crazy.

Jess, New Girl

The turning point in my career came with the realization that Black should play to win instead of just steering for equality.

Bobby Fischer

Genius. It’s a word. What does it really mean? If I win I’m a genius. If I don’t, I’m not.

Bobby Fischer

Let’s play. I’m willing to play anywhere.

Bobby Fischer

I am the best player in the world and I am here to prove it.

Bobby Fischer

I like the moment when I break a man’s ego.

Bobby Fischer

That’s what chess is all about. One day you give your opponent a lesson, the next day he gives you one.

Bobby Fischer

You have to have the fighting spirit. You have to force moves and take chances.

Bobby Fischer

Chess is war over the board. The object is to crush the opponent’s mind.

Bobby Fischer

It’s just you and your opponent at the board and you’re trying to prove something.
