Well, here we are. It’s the third and final day of the 3 Days 3 Quotes tag, so thanks again to
So, this should be interesting as I like the quote and the meaning, although I think it has a small flaw, but I’ll get to that in a minute.
“Even a pawn can take down a King.”
That was the lovely Rias Gremory from High School DxD giving Issei some encouragement. Now, I love the sentiment of the statement. It gives hope to the lowest-ranked piece in a game of chess that they can defeat the highest-ranked piece. Who doesn’t want to think that they can achieve greatness from such a humble position?
So, that’s great, but if you know anything about chess, you’ll know that the pawn cannot take down the king alone. I don’t think there is any position that it could do it alone
Who knows, maybe Rias was saying that you also need to rely on the team and their individual strengths. Maybe, I’m just reading too much into it. Anyhow, it’s a cool quote and that’s all that matters.
Stop overthinking it and just be cool.
So, this is my final nomination for the tag and I choose… Alexie the Great at Alex’s Arena. Again, no pressure to keep it going, but it would be great if it did. There are far too many awesome quotes to stop now.
And that’s that. I hope you enjoyed my selection of quotes, basically, never give up, remain positive, and don’t be afraid to take on the mightiest of opponents. Thanks for reading.
