Sun Tzu was a military strategist and advisor to a king in China around 500BC.

Most people know Sun Tzu from the world-famous book, ‘The Art of War’, which has not only informed thousands of years of warfare but also informs on success in life. It doesn’t matter if it’s in the business world or personal world, we can all learn something. Here are the 15 best Sun Tzu quotes from  ‘The Art of War.”

1 “Who wishes to fight must first count the cost.”

2. “Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win”

3. “Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.”

4. “It is easy to love your friend, but sometimes the hardest lesson to learn is to love your enemy”

5. “If you know the enemy and you 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”

6. All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must appear 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.

7. “Bravery without forethought, causes a man to fight blindly and desperately like a mad bull. Such an opponent, must not be encountered with brute force, but may be lured into an ambush and slain.”

8. “Do not repeat the tactics which have gained you one victory, but let your methods be regulated by the infinite variety of circumstances.”

9. “There are not more than five musical notes, yet the combinations of these five give rise to more melodies than can ever be heard. There are not more than five primary colours, yet in combination they produce more hues than can ever been seen. There are not more than five cardinal tastes, yet combinations of them yield more flavours than can ever be tasted.”

10. “Opportunities multiply as they are seized.”

11. “The opportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself.”

12. “We cannot enter into alliances until we are acquainted with the designs of our neighbors.”

13. “If you fight with all your might, there is a chance of life; where as death is certain if you cling to your corner.”

14. “If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.”

15. “The skillful tactician may be likened to the shuai-jan. Now the shuai-jan is a snake that is found in the Ch’ang mountains. Strike at its head, and you will be attacked by its tail; strike at its tail, and you will be attacked by its head; strike at its middle, and you will be attacked by head and tail both.”
