|What the ancients
called a clever fighter is one who not only wins, but excels in winning with
ease. Hence his victories bring him neither reputation for wisdom nor credit
for courage. He wins his battles by making no mistakes. Making no mistakes
is what establishes the certainty of victory, for it means conquering an
enemy that is already defeated. Hence the skillful fighter puts himself into
a position which makes defeat impossible, and does not miss the moment for
defeating the enemy. Thus it is that in war the victorious strategist only
seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to
defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory.
