Karpov, "It happens that being in a time trouble I may sent the piece to the needed square and while it lands there my hand is already on a clock button."

Karpov, "I was the World Champion for 16 times - in the individual and team events together."

Karpov, "I earned money as a chess player for the first time at the international tournament in Czechoslovakia being 15. I won the competition."

Karpov, "The memory is needed for the chess players, but it's not as important as everyone thinks."

Karpov is presented with a cake with candles. He blew them out in three breaths, "You know, all good things come in threeі..."

The 12th World Champion noted all of his dreams came true. As the journalist remembered Karpov his childhood dream of becoming a pilot, he responded, "I became a pilot, but a passive one. A few have flown as much as I have."
