The defensive power of a pinned piece is only imaginary” (Aaron Nimzovich)


Those who plead their cause in the absence of an opponent can invent to their heart’s content, can pontificate without taking into account the opposite point of view and keep the best arguments for themselves, for aggressors are always quick to attack those who have no means of defence.”

Christine de Pizan, Der Sendbrief vom Liebesgott / The Letter of the God of Love
