If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles. The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.
Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win. He who knows when he can fight and when he cannot, will be victorious. Know your enemy and know yourself and you can fight a hundred battles without disaster.

A thousand battles, a thousand victories. If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near. To see victory only when it is within the ken of the common herd is not the acme of excellence.
There has never been a protracted war from which a country has benefited. Secret operations are essential in war; upon them the army relies to make its every move. All warfare is based on deception.

He who knows when he can fight and when he cannot will be victorious. Treat your men as you would your own beloved sons. And they will follow you into the deepest valley.
