Hence to fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting.
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.
He who exercises no forethought but makes light of his opponents is sure to be captured by them.
One who sets the entire army in motion to chase an advantage will not attain it.
Do not press an enemy at bay.
Confront them with annihilation, and they will then survive; plunge them into a deadly situation, and they will then live. When people fall into danger, they are then able to strive for victory.
All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.
All war is deception.
According to my assessment, even if you have many more troops than others, how can that help you to victory?
