Master Sun’s Rules of Warfare #7

“In war, numbers alone confer no advantage. Do not advance relying on sheer military power. It is sufficient to estimate the enemy situation correctly and to concentrate your strenght to capture him. There is no more to it than this. He who lacks foresight and underestimates his enemy will surely be captured by him.”

(The Art of War, Chapter IX, Moving the force)

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