Seite 223 - Caution, not to make our moves too hastily. This habit is best acquired by observing strictly the laws of the game ; such as, " If you touch a piece, you must move it somewhere ; if you set it down, you must let it stand...
Seite 224 - ... and it is therefore best that these rules should be observed ; as the game thereby becomes more the image of human life, and particularly of war ; in which, if you have incautiously put yourself into a bad and dangerous position, you cannot obtain your enemy's leave to withdraw your troops, and place them more securely, but you must abide all the consequences of your rashness. And, lastly, we learn by chess the habit of not being discouraged by present bad appearances in the state of our affairs,...
Seite 223 - If I move this piece, what will be the advantage of my new situation? What use can my adversary make of it to annoy me? What other moves can I make to support it and to defend myself from his attacks?
Seite 220 - ... tis e'en a joy to yield). Each guileful snare and subtle art he tries, But finds his art less powerful than her eyes ; Wisdom and strength superior charms obey: And beauty, beauty wins the long-fought day.

The queens exulting near their consorts stand; Each bears a deadly falchion in her hand; Now here, now there, they bound with furious pride, And thin the trembling ranks from side to side; Swift as Camilla flying o'er the main, Or lightly skimming o'er the dewy plain : Fierce as they seem, some bold Plebeian spear May pierce their shield, or stop their full career.
