El cuerpo debe estar en perfectas condiciones. Si se deteriora el cuerpo, se deteriora el ajedrez. No se puede separar el cuerpo y la mente.
“You don’t learn anything in school. It’s just a waste of time. You lug around books and all and do homework. They give too much homework. You shouldn’t be doing homework. Nobody’s interested in it. The teachers are stupid. […] And they shouldn’t make anyone go to school. You don’t want to go, you don’t go, that’s all. It’s ridiculous. I don’t remember one thing I learned in school. I don’t listen to weakies. My two and a half years in Erasmus High I wasted. I didn’t like the whole thing. You have to mix with all those stupid kids. The teachers are even stupider than the kids. They talk down to the kids. Half of them are crazy. If they’d have let me, I would have quit before I was sixteen.”
