Just another silly forum game.
Let’s do some falsification of history
Make up you own famous person imaginary quote on go. Use your imagination and create a quote that a famous person could have said.
The famous person can be a historical reality, but also a fictional one.
“For 800 years have I trained Go players. My own counsel will I keep on who is to be trained! A Go player must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind…
Adventure. Heh! Excitement. A Go player craves not these things.”
An actual quote that I like to imagine is about Go (in comparison to other lesser games, such as those that have to make up for a lack of abstract beauty with silly stylistic flourishes, like adopting the theme of a medieval power struggle, with references to castles and royalty, cavalry and infantry, and even the machinations of the clergy):
I feel so strongly that deep and simple is more essential than shallow and complex.
nah, sadly Greece’s motto is a nursery rhyme about teaching children proper manners when eating their food. When we eat, we don’t talk, we focus on/look at our food (It rhymes in Greek: όταν τρώμε δεν μιλάμε / το φαγάκι μας κοιτάμε)
Apply that to funds, taxes and public money and you’ve got yourself a national motto
Children used to sing that before dinner while banging the cuttlery in tune with the rhythm, which was very funny. It gets funnier if you think adults wearing suits and ties in a meeting doing the same thing, but with briefcases.
Anyway, you can change that to something Go related, else I wouldn’t have posted:
“When we eat groups, we don’t tenuki, we focus on possible tesuji”
— Nursery rhyme (don’t forget to place/bang the stones on the board, in tune with the rhythm)
