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