Sun Tzu Quotes:

Swift as the wind
Quiet as the forest
Conquer like the fire
Steady as the mountain
A leader leads by example not by force. Pretend inferiority and encourage his arrogance. To know your Enemy, you must become your Enemy. Opportunities multiply as they are seized. Pretend inferiority and encourage his arrogance. All warfare is based on deception. To a surrounded enemy, you must leave a way of escape. If your opponent is of choleric temperament, seek to irritate him. There is no instance of a nation benefitting from prolonged warfare. Build your opponent a golden bridge to retreat across. He who knows when he can fight and when he cannot will be victorious. Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.
