Dispositions – Sun Tzu


  1. Defend yourself when you cannot defeat the enemy, and attack the enemy when you can. (P39)
  2. The skillful commander takes up a position in which he cannot be defeated and misses no opportunity to overcome his enemy.  Thus, a victory is possible under them, whereas an army destined to defeat fights in the hope of winning but without any planning. (P40)
