    Great Encounters in Contemporary Chess

    The moment of death has the power to stress in a single move the achievement or the futility of a life. 

    The death of Alekhine contains a paradox. If he had sought happiness, he found something different; if he had wanted fame, his name will live as long as chess is played.
