About Bobby Fischer:
Robert James was an American chess prodigy, grandmaster, and the eleventh World Chess Champion. Many consider him the greatest chess player of all time.
I felt that chess... is a science in the form of a game... I consider myself a scientist. I wanted to be treated like a scientist.
I hate ready-made suits, button-down collars, and sports shirts.
The white people should go back to Europe, and the country should be returned to the American Indians. This is the future I would like to see for the so-called United States.
Nothing eases suffering like human touch.
I hope the Icelandic government grants me political asylum.
I want to see the U.S. wiped out. Death to the U.S.
All that matters on the chessboard is good moves.
I like the moment when I break a man's ego.
America is totally under control of the Jews, you know. I mean, look what they're doing in Yugoslavia.
The U.S. and Israel have been slaughtering the Palestinians, just slaughtering them, for years. Robbing them and slaughtering them.
Ultimately the white man should leave the United States and the black people should go back to Africa.
I don't want to look like a bum.
All I want to do, ever, is play chess.
I am boring. I am boring!
I consider myself to be a genius who happens to play chess.
I don't believe in psychology.
Nothing is so healing as the human touch.
I don't remember one thing I learned in school.
I don't listen to weakies.
There isn't a woman player in the world I can't give knights-odds to and still beat.
