What can I say about Fischer? I feel this man had to be the World Champion and nothing would stop him. It was a foregone conclusion. His career took a rather roundabout course but everything was already mapped out! I think that five years before he became World Champion, everyone was aware that the inevitable would happen. He was a real driving force! And Spassky got run over by that 'machine'. I think that any other player would have lost to Fischer too. They were not much weaker, it was the will of fate - Fischer would have broken through any cordon. - Vladimir Kramnik
With his games were educated generations. He was a man who left great heritage in classical Chess.
Fischer is like Zeus - he is the God of the gods. - Nigel Short
