3 L's of chess: A chess lover's innovative interpretation

Chess news and chess trivia blog (c0 Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2010

We love chess

Hello Everyone,

No matter what anyone says but chess is now an integral part of the collective consciousness of the human species!

Does that sound a bit weird? It just means we love chess and every day, someone finds something new to write about chess and their life.

There are hundreds of blog posts, news reports and articles that go on to the Internet every single day. But we found this special paragraph that surely needs to be shared.

A food technologist who holds a Bachelor of Law degree and is currently teaching conversational English at Sisa English Language School in Gyeongsan, North Gyeongsang Province, wrote this at

"The three L's that continually control, shape and hone my life, I attribute to chess: law, life and love. Law, like chess, is spirited by rules and regulations for the benefit of both the citizens and the State. Life, like chess, requires planning and should failure impede, one should overcome or at least try again. Successful people have more or less failed in one form or another. Love, like chess, requires certain sacrifices in order to succeed. Love, is after all, work; a residue of duty and commitment."

Now, that's a new one!
