Dan’s Wednesday Quote of the Week #26 –

Tani

Tanitoluwa Adewumi, better known as Tani, was a homeless seven year old refugee from Nigeria who lives in New York City. He learned to play chess and by the time he was ten became an official “chess master.”

Nicholas Kristof, the New York Times columnist who introduced me to Tani in his Sunday (May 9, 2021) column, asked Tani how he feels when he loses.

When you lose, you have made a mistake, and that can help you learn. I never lose, I learn.
