A Quote by G. Steiner on chess, contentment, history, investment, kindness, mathematics, music, police, reality, and wealth

For all their wealth of content, for all the sum of history and social institution invested in them, music, mathematics, and chess are resplendently useless (applied mathematics is a higher plumbing, a kind of music for the police band). They are metaphysically trivial, irresponsible. They refuse to relate outward, to take reality for arbiter. This is the source of their witchery.

G. Steiner
