It takes an hour to learn to play Go but a lifetime to master it.
The Chinese scholar Wu Ts'ah Ts'u says:
There is no other game more captavating than Go. It seduces men like women or wine. If you think the game is difficult-even young boys can play it. But if you think the game is easy, not even the most sophisticated of men will ever master it.
Rule of politeness in Go:
Don't become arrogant if you won a game and as a loser don't look for excuses.
Jin-Dynasty (265 - 420 AD.):
War between two nephews Xian An and Xian Xuan: After a long-lasting bloodshed, the two warring parties decided to settle their dispute by playing Go.
