Carlsen quotes by Viswanathan Anand
I can't count the times I have lagged seemingly hopelessly far behind, and nobody except myself thinks I can win. But I have pulled myself in from desperate [situations]. When you are behind there are two strategies - counter-attack or all men to the defences. I'm good at finding the right balance between those. ~ Magnus Carlsen

Carlsen quotes by Magnus Carlsen
I started by just sitting by the chessboard exploring things. I didn't even have books at first, and I just played by myself. I learnt a lot from that, and I feel that it is a big reason why I now have a good intuitive understanding of chess. ~ Magnus Carlsen
Carlsen quotes by Magnus Carlsen
I really enjoy the experience of playing humans. The psychological game is so much more important. ~ Magnus Carlsen
Carlsen quotes by Magnus Carlsen
I honestly don't read that much. Obviously I read chess books - in terms of favorites, Kasparov's 'My Great Predecessors' is pretty good. ~ Magnus Carlsen
Carlsen quotes by Magnus Carlsen
Carlsen came with a line that was not very theoretical, trying to challenge the World Champion to play chess. [ ... ] But Anand proved that even this obscure line is something he has studied before, and it was Carlsen that was set back. ~ Alejandro Ramirez
Carlsen quotes by Alejandro Ramirez
I don't think there is a thing like overconfidence in chess. It's always better to be too confident than too reluctant. ~ Magnus Carlsen
Carlsen quotes by Magnus Carlsen
I get more upset at losing at other things than chess. I always get upset when I lose at Monopoly. ~ Magnus Carlsen
Carlsen quotes by Magnus Carlsen
Some people think that if their opponent plays a beautiful game, it's okay to lose. I don't. You have to be merciless. ~ Magnus Carlsen
Carlsen quotes by Magnus Carlsen
For me right now I think being the world number one is a bigger deal than being the world champion because I think it shows better who plays the best chess. That sounds self-serving but I think it's also right. ~ Magnus Carlsen
Carlsen quotes by Magnus Carlsen
People ask what my goal is. I don't have a goal. ~ Magnus Carlsen
Carlsen quotes by Magnus Carlsen
Self-confidence is very important. If you don't think you can win, you will take cowardly decisions in the crucial moments, out of sheer respect for your opponent. You see the opportunity but also greater limitations than you should. I have always believed in what I do on the chessboard, even when I had no objective reason to. It is better to overestimate your prospects than underestimate them. ~ Magnus Carlsen
Carlsen quotes by Magnus Carlsen
I learnt an enormous amount, but there came a point where I found there was too much stress. It was no fun any more. Outside of the chessboard I avoid conflict, so I thought this wasn't worth it. ~ Magnus Carlsen
Carlsen quotes by Magnus Carlsen
Not winning a tournament is not an option for me, unless it's no longer theoretically possible - then of course winning becomes impossible. But up to that point, not winning is just not an option. ~ Magnus Carlsen
Carlsen quotes by Magnus Carlsen
I'm not really into rap. ~ Magnus Carlsen
Carlsen quotes by Magnus Carlsen
If you want to get to the top, there's always the risk that it will isolate you from other people. ~ Magnus Carlsen
Carlsen quotes by Magnus Carlsen
There wasn't any particular player I modeled my game after. I tried to learn from everyone and create my own style. I studied past players. Truth be told I never had a favorite player. It's just not my nature to go around idolizing people. I just go try to learn. ~ Magnus Carlsen
Carlsen quotes by Magnus Carlsen
It's easy for me to get along with chess players. Even though we are all very different, we have chess in common. ~ Magnus Carlsen
Carlsen quotes by Magnus Carlsen
Contrary to many young Colleagues, I do believe that it makes sense to study the Classics. ~ Magnus Carlsen
Carlsen quotes by Magnus Carlsen
I've never been much of a computer guy at least in terms of playing with computers. Actually until I was about 11 I didn't use a computer for preparing for games at all. I was playing a bit online, was using the chess club mainly. Now, obviously, the computer is an important tool for me preparing for my games. ~ Magnus Carlsen
Carlsen quotes by Magnus Carlsen
I don't consider myself a particularly young chess player. I have been playing in the best tournaments in the world since I was 16 years old. In other sports, if you have been playing for seven years, you are not a young prodigy any more. You're one of the pros. ~ Magnus Carlsen
Carlsen quotes by Magnus Carlsen
Right now I'm really happy with how things are going with my chess career, so I'm not thinking of doing anything else. ~ Magnus Carlsen
Carlsen quotes by Magnus Carlsen
Without the element of enjoyment, it is not worth trying to excel at anything. ~ Magnus Carlsen
