As a chessplayer, I can say this is wrong. I have several times lost games because I did both the penultimate and the final mistake.

I know nothing about chess. I just thought it was an interesting quote about making the next to last mistake instead of just making the last mistake.

It's not bad. Tartakower was quite a character, though. A couple of other famous chess quotes from him are: "It's not enough to be a good player, you also have to play well" and "Moral victories don't count".

things were created to be used.
The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved, and people are being used."
