Sun Tzu Quotes
Disciplined, wait for disorder; calm, wait for clamor. This is the way to manage the mind. Near, wait for the distant; rested, wait for the fatigued; full, wait for the hungry. This is the way to manage strength. Do not do battle with well ordered flags; do not do battle with well-regulated formations. This is the way to manage adaptation. Therefore, the principles of warfare are: Do not attack an enemy that has the high ground; do not attack an enemy that has his back to a hill; do not pursue feigned retreats; do not attack elite troops; do not swallow the enemy's bait; do not thwart an enemy retreating home. If you surround the enemy, leave an outlet; do not press an enemy that is cornered. These are the principles of warfare. -- Sun Tsu, "The Art of War"
