Another Quote[edit]

Alexander said something that I think was extremely witty but I am hazy on the detail and reluctant to try to include the following in the article itself -- if someone knows more, it would be nice to add this.

When Alexander was given some honor, he was asked by a reporter whether he was now a Knight. He said something like, "Oh no, barely [or "not even"] a tempo."

Not sure the reporter would have understood the pun, where Alexander is indicating that his value is far less than the chess piece and more close to the advantage of, say, having the first move in chess.--Jrm2007 (talk) 22:19, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
