 After a day like this, I always think back over some board proverbs of Wiswell or Bisguier. After you've made a really bad move in haste and got yourself in an untenable position, they would say, "Now you're thinking." This favorite of Tom's also comes to mind, "Moves that disturb your position the least disturb your opponent the most." I believe a variant of this is, "Don't create holes in your position." Tom liked to create problems with the theme, "It's darkest before the end of the night."

Matt Johnson remarks:

True, but you know the night has passed only after the sun rises. So do you trade when you first see a glimmer of light, or do you trade when it’s dark?
