I did this four years ago, time to do it again: Some More Sun Tzu For Your Asses [View all]

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

"If the enemy leaves the door open, you must rush in."

"Therefore the skillful leader subdues the enemy's troops without any fighting;
he captures their cities without laying siege to them; he overthrows their kingdom
without lengthy operations in the field."

"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."

"Supreme excellence consists in breaking an enemy's resistance without fighting."

"All men can see these tactics whereby I conquer, but what none can see is the
strategy out of which victory is evolved."
