A Sabedoria de Yoda pode aplicar-se ao Xadrêz
Embora os mestres de xadrêz possam não nascer com altos indices de midichloridians, o mestre de xadrêz deve seguir os princípios Jedi e aprender a disciplinar a sua mente para buscar a verdade.
Todos os mestres de xadrêz devem aderir a essas palavras sábias que Yoda disse a Luke Skywalker, quando o treinava para ser um Jedi contra Dagobah:
A Jedi must have the deepest commitment . . . the most serious mind.
The chess master must commit and focus all his powers while analyzing a position.
No . . . try not. Do . . . or do not. There is no try.
The chess master does not try to find the best move, he searches until he finds it.
Difficult to see, always in motion is the future.
Chess positions can be complicated, even the greatest chess masters cannot always see the future clearly.
If you end your training now, if you choose the quick and easy path, as Vader did, you will become an agent of evil.
The chess master can never take the easy path and guess at the best move, he must work hard until he finds the truth in the position.
Checks are forcing moves in chess. Just as "The Force" is a powerful ally to the Jedi, forcing moves are a powerful weapon when used by the chess master.
