Chess Quotes

"The chess pieces are the block alphabet which shapes thoughts; and these thoughts, although making a visual design on the chess-board, express their beauty abstractly, like a poem. . . . I have come to the personal conclusion that while all artists are not chess players, all chess players are artists."

"I am still a victim of chess. It has all the beauty of art - and much more. It cannot be commercialized. Chess is much purer than art in its social position."

Marcel Duchamp, French-born American Dadaist/Surrealist Conceptual Artist, 1887-1968.

Há um livro de entrevistas realizadas a Marcel Duchamp que vale a pena ler.

Tem como título "Engenheiro do Tempo Perdido"

No caso ainda não ter lido aconselho-o vivamente!
