Although it's now considered a word used only humorously, it's still a nice one. One of the more ancient words we have, too, as it goes back to before the year 1,000.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.
William Shakespeare wrote:We have beat him to his camp: run one before,
And let the queen know of our gests. To-morrow,
Before the sun shall see 's, we'll spill the blood
That has to-day escaped. I thank you all;
For doughty-handed are you, and have fought
Not as you served the cause, but as 't had been
Each man's like mine; you have shown all Hectors.
~Mark Antony, Antony and Cleopatra, Act IV, Scene viii
