Sun Tzu Quotes



Therefore, if one knows the place of battle and the day of
battle, he can march a thousand li and do battle. If one does not
know the place of battle and the day of battle, then his left
cannot aid his right, and his right cannot aid his left; his
front cannot aid his back, and his back cannot aid his front. How
much less so if he is separated by tens of li, or even a few li.
Based on my calculations, though Yueh's troops were many, what
advantage was this to them in respect to victory? Therefore I
say, victory can be achieved.
                -- Sun Tsu, "The Art of War"
