Training quote of the day #9

From Peter Zhdanov's Yearbook of Chess Wisdom; see also Playing Styles Deconstructed.
When I asked GM Arkadij Naiditsch whether it would be better for me to try to develop my style by studying the games of attacking players or to eliminate my shortcomings by resorting to the masters of strategic play, he replied: "You are too weak to have a style. Study everything!"
