Sun Tzu


Sun Tzu (Recorded 6th-3rd Century BCE)

“Military dispositions
Take form like water.
Water shuns the high
And hastens to the low.
War shuns the strong
And attacks the weak.
Water shapes its current
From the lie of the land.
The warrior shapes his victory
From the dynamic of the enemy.

  • From Sun Tzu’s The Art of War (Chapter 6), translated by John Minford (Penguin Classics, 2009).
