♖  "The radiant combinations of this chess genius (Paul Morphy) can be compared with the transparent music of Mozart, and his impeccable behaviour at the board and
his precise observance of the chess rules, which he himself introduced, resemble the Mendeleyev Table of the elements." -Anatoly Karpov  ♖
