” If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles. “


” The art of war teaches us to rely not on the likelihood of the enemy’s not coming, but on our own readiness to receive him, not on the chance of his not attacking, but rather on the fact that we have made our position unassailable. “


” Thus, what is of supreme importance in war is to attack the enemy’s strategy. “


” The good fighters of old first put themselves beyond the possibility of defeat, and then waited for an opportunity of defeating the enemy. “


” Now the reason the enlightened prince and the wise general conquer the enemy whenever they move and their achievements surpass those of ordinary men is foreknowledge. “


” 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. “


” It is essential to seek out enemy agents who have come to conduct espionage against you and to bribe them to serve you. Give them instructions and care for them. Thus doubled agents are recruited and used. “


” When envoys are sent with compliments in their mouths, it is a sign that the enemy wishes for a truce. “
