“And therefore those skilled in war bring the enemy to the field of battle and are not brought there by him. One able to make the enemy come of his own accord does so by offering him some advantage. And one able to prevent him from coming does so by hurting him.”

(The Art of War, Chapter VI, Weaknesses and Strengths*)

* « Weaknesses and Strengths » stands for 虛實 (Xūshí)

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