“Invincibility depends on one’s self; the enemy’s vulnerability on him. It follows that those skilled in war can make themselves invincible but cannot cause an enemy to be certainly vulnerable. Therefore it is said that one may know how to win, but cannot necessarily do so.”

(The Art of War, Chapter IV, Positioning)

“Therefore I say: « Know the enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles you will never be in peril. When your are ignorant of the enemy but know yourself, your chance of winning or losing are equal. If ignorant both of your enemy and of yourself, you are certain in every battle to be in peril. »”
