Hai­ku remind me of chess. Why? I’m glad you asked. Chess, you see, is not just a game. Chess tea­ches you how to think. Chess tea­ches you how to nego­tia­te. Chess tea­ches you that if you attack pre­ma­tu­re­ly in the zero-sum games of life, you will lose.

Auch Defi­ning Wis­dom über­schätzt das Schach­spiel ein wenig.
