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.):
