Art of War Quotes
Chris, Netherlands
I really like this version of Sun Tzu's The Art of War translated by Lionel Giles.
I found some quotes on this website.
The whole book is basically writen in ''quotes'', which to me, makes it really easy to read. I can't really say which quote I like most, it really depends on the situation.

My Favourite Quote by Sun Tzu
David Guild, Consultant, Australia
In the Art of War by Sun Tzu, this is my favourite quote:
"Know your enemy and know yourself, and in a hundred battles you will never be defeated".

Summing Up the Art of War with a Quote!
Shawn R. Frost, Strategy Consultant, United States
@David Guild: That's a favorite quote of mine as well, and probably the best example of a "thesis" of AoW, if it had to be summed up.
We also like to add: Know the ground (terrain/ market place) and the climate (trends) and victory is assured. These other factors are from the five factors listed in book one.
Thanks for sharing the quote, your participation adds greatly to the discourse.

Quotes from the Art of War by Sun Tzu
Akuru Gabriel, Entrepreneur, Nigeria
Plan for what is difficult while it is easy, do what is great while it is small. The most difficult things in life should be done while they are still easy, the greatest things in the world must be done while they are still small.
