“Therefore the skillful commander takes up a position in which he cannot be defeated and misses no opportunity to master his enemy. Thus a victorious army wins its victories before seeking battle; an army destined to defeat fights in the hope of winning.”
(The Art of War, Chapter IV, Positioning)
Sun Tzu, Chinese strategist (c. 544 BC-c. 496 BCE)
