Chess Quote - Charles Buxton on Forethought, Life & Chess

Charles Buxton (18231871) was an English philanthropist and writer who followed in his famous father's (Thomas Fowell Buxton) footsteps to become a brewer and member of Parliament. In chess circles he is remembered for his famous quote:
"In life, as in chess, forethought wins."
Amongst his other attributed quotes the comment about time is also particularly relevant:
"You will never find time for anything. If you want time you must make it."
