The Art of War

I've just read Sun-tzu's, "The Art of War". Even though the text is over 2000 years old there's some great strategic advice for "little armies." I don't know if there is such a thing as a two person army but here are some of the quotes I liked:
  • "The skillful warrior does not rely on the enemy's not coming, but on his own preparedness."
  • "Know the enemy, know yourself, and victory is never in doubt, not in a hundred battles."
  • "If an opponent is strong enter from the side."
  • "Ultimate excellence lies not in winning every battle but in defeating the enemy without ever fighting."
OK. Right. Now back to the bugs ... what was that one on line 671 again? ;-)

Seriously though, we're getting prepared! We don't want to get knocked out again. ;-)
