“Combinations have always been the most intriguing
aspect of Chess. The masters look for them,
the public applauds them, the critics praise them.
It is because combinations are possible that Chess
is more than a lifeless mathematical exercise.
They are the poetry of the game;
they are to Chess what melody is to music.
They represent the triumph of mind over matter”

(Reuben Fine)
