Tactics

 

In general I consider that in chess everything rests on tactics. If one thinks of strategy as a block of marble, then tactics are the chisel with which a master operates, in creating works of chess art.  -  Tigran Petrosian

 

The defensive power of a pinned piece is but imaginary.  -  Aaron Nimzowitsch

 

Tactics involve calculations that can tax the human brain, but when you boil them down, they are actually the simplest part of chess and are almost trivial compared to strategy.  -  Garry Kasparov

 

Tactics flow from a superior position.  -  Bobby Fischer

 

If the student forces himself to examine all the moves that smite, however absurd they look at first glance, he is on the way to becoming a master of tactics.  -  Cecil Purdy

 

Tactics involve calculations that can tax the human brain, but when you boil them down, they are actually the simplest part of chess and are almost trivial compared to strategy.   -  Garry Kasparov

 

Chess is 99% tactics.  -  Rudolph Teichmann

 

Discovered check is the dive bomber of the chess board.  -  Rueben Fine

 

We often hear the terms 'positional' and 'tactical' used as opposites. But this is as wrong as to consider a painting's composition unrelated to its subject. Just as there is no such thing as 'artistic' art, so there is no such thing as 'positional' chess.  -  Samuel Reshevsky

 

Good players develop a tactical instinct, a sense of what is possible or likely and what is not worth calculating.  -  Samuel Reshevsky

 

The tactician must know what to do whenever something needs doing;the strategist must know what to do when nothing needs doing.  -  Savielly Tartakower

 

No matter how much theory progresses, how radically styles change, chess play is inconceivable without tactics.  -  Samuel Reshevsky

 

Even the laziest king flees wildly in the face of double check.  - Aaron Nimzowitsch
