I am looking for a Kasparov quote on boldness. I would like to be something along the lines of this: "I do less tactical training as tournament time approaches. Instead, I do more bold, daring things."

I found a few in an article on chessworld.com called "31 Great Chess Quotes from Garry Kasparov."

“When your house is on fire, you can’t be bothered with the neighbors. Or, as we say in chess, if your King is under attack, don’t worry about losing a pawn on the queenside.”

“If you wish to succeed, you must brave the risk of failure.”

“The highest art of the chessplayer lies in not allowing your opponent to show you what he can do.”
