” To fight and conquer in all our battles is not supreme excellence, supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting. “


” Thus it is that in war the victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory. “


” The general who wins the battle makes many calculations in his temple before the battle is fought. The general who loses makes but few calculations beforehand. “


” For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill. “
