“All warfare is based on deception. Therefore, when capable, feign incapacity; when active, inactivity. When near, make it appear that you are far away; when far away, that you are near. Offer the enemy a bai to lure him; feign disorder and strike him.”

(The Art of War, Chapter I, Estimates)

Sun Tzu, Chinese strategist (c. 544 BC-c. 496 BCE)
