Never was anything great achieved without danger
There is nothing worse than aggressive stupidity.

All warfare is based on deception.
To secure ourselves against defeat lies in our own hands, but theopportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself.

A conqueror is always a lover of peace.
No one can guarantee success in war, but only deserve it.
The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.
