“When the enemy is near by but lying low he is depending on a favourable position. When he challenges to battle from afar he wishes to lure you to advance, for when he is in easy ground he is in an advantageous position.”
(The Art of War, Chapter IX, Moving the force)
Sun Tzu, Chinese strategist (c. 544 BC-c. 496 BCE)
