Above picture of twin girls playing the analytical game of chess. “Chess teaches foresight by having to plan ahead, vigilance by having to keep watch over the whole chess board, caution by having to restrain ourselves from making hasty moves and finally we learn from chess the greatest maxim in life. That even when everything seems to be going badly for us, we should not lose heart, but always hoping for a change for the better, steadfastly continue searching for the solutions to our problems.” ---Benjamin Franklin
