    From the Sun Tzu masterpieceThe Art of War

    It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.

     

    Translation

    • If you know others and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know others but know yourself, you win one and lose one; if you do not know others and do not know yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.
    • Know your enemy and know yourself, find naught in fear for 100 battles. Know yourself but not your enemy, find level of loss and victory. Know thy enemy but not yourself, wallow in defeat every time.

    From the Sun Tzu masterpiece “The Art of War

    Five Essentials for Victory:

    • He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight.
    • He will win who knows how to handle both superior and inferior forces.
    • He will win whose army is animated by the same spirit throughout all its ranks.
    • He will win who, prepared himself, waits to take the enemy unprepared.
    • He will win who has military capacity and is not interfered with by the sovereign.

    Therefore, as the saying goes:

    If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
