Why was the quote by Burgess removed? The only quote now is just 'life is too short for chess,' which is not only rather negative, but violates the Rule Of Cautious Editing Judgement. Can we put the Burgess quote back?

Time to shift some tropes from the Main to the Characters Page.

How about adding a "Works of which chess is a significant part" section? These include Alice Through the Looking Glass and John Brunner's The Squares of the City, and of course the musical Chess; borderline cases could include The Thomas Crown Affair (the 1968 original), which has been said to feature "the most famous chess game in cinematic history", and Harry Potter And The Philosophers Stone, if a single scene can count as "significant" (the latter at least probably could, since although only one scene it's an important one).
