Emanuel Lasker. Do you see how White can win?
”You should keep in mind no names, nor numbers, nor isolated incidents, not even results, but only methods. The method is plastic….He who wants to educate himself in Chess must evade what is dead in Chess—artificial theories, supported by few instances and unheld by an excess of human wit; the habit of playing with inferior opponents; the custom of avoiding difficult tasks; the weakness of uncritically taking over variations or rules discovered by others; the vanity which is self-sufficient; the incapacity for admitting mistakes; in brief, everything that leads to a standstill or to anarchy.”—E.Lasker (Lasker’s Manual; page 338)
