Garry Kasparov speaks out to youths

Choice words from Garry Kasparov at the Youth Engagement Summit 2009 held at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre on 17 Nov 2009, as reported from the plenary hall via Twitter by The Star's R.AGE team.

I just want to add that these quotes come from Kasparov's own chess and political experience. But yesterday, his audience of about 1,000 youths and an unknown number of "non-youths" heard him in a completely different perspective.
  • At the end of the day, no matter what you do, your nature shows up.
  • I'm always looking for changes. I married three times.
  • The key of success is to be objective about your strength and your weaknesses. And that of your enemies.
  • Courage is often the ingredient forgotten when making decision.
  • Always ask why.
  • Once you understand your strategy, deploying it is only a matter of desire.
  • Doing well today is not enough for doing well tomorrow.
  • There will always be newcomers to attack you from the bottom.
  • To survive, you must evolve.
  • I'm not a religious man, but if I have faith, it would be in innovation.
