Frasi Paul Morphy

„It [chess] is eminently and emphatically the philosopher's game.“

—  Paul Morphy
As quoted in Testimonials to Paul Morphy: Presented at University Hall, New York, May 25, 1859

„So still was he, that but for the searching intellect which glittered in his full dark eye, you might have taken him for a carven image as he pondered his moves. His bearing was mild and that of a refined gentleman, and he dealt the most crushing blows on his adversary with an almost womanly ease and grace.“

—  Paul Morphy
