I think maybe Napolean said it. To paraphrase "In this life we are either kings or pawns; emporers or fools."
You either make history or become part of it. You lead or you follow. You have the power or you don't.
On the discussion page I added my comments and wrote more about this subject. I will add, in case people do not look at the discussion page, that in Alexander Dumas' book "The Count of Monte Cristo", he had his character Napolean say the phrase to Dumas' lead character, Edmond, when he was on Elba. Most people know Alexander Dumas by his book "The Three Musketeers".

The strategic way is to never move the four pieces on the side closest to you and if you play it right, you can eliminate their pawns since they are unable to make kings.

Try to put them in a position where they can defend each other and still get to the far side, where they can become a major piece.Pawn Structure in the EndgameThere are two major criteria in the endgame with only pawns. While pawns occasionally can mate an opposing king, their real threat is promotion, to a queen or other piece. Connected passed pawns (on adjacent files) are stronger, provided they can eventually be supported by their king. But any open file (unblocked by an opposing pawn) is an advantage. In the simplest form, two widely separated pawns also provide an opportunity, as enemy kings will have difficulty capturing them both.Several pawns can create a defensive lattice against intrusion by other pawns or the king, and often games will be determined by the stronger structure, or by the ability of the opposing king to defeat the structure.Advanced strategy is sometimes required to avoid stalemating a lone king, which is sometimes the only chance to salvage a draw when a player is down by one or more pawns.
The game starts with 8 white pawns and 8 black pawns.
