Art of War: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12]

The Art of War
by Sun Tzu

5) Energy

  1. Ensure that your whole host may withstand the brunt of the enemy's attack and remain unshaken-- this is effected by maneuvers direct and indirect.
  2. That the impact of your army may be like a grindstone dashed against an egg--this is effected by the science of weak points and strong.
  3. In all fighting, the direct method may be used for joining battle, but indirect methods will be needed in order to secure victory.
  4. Indirect tactics, efficiently applied, are inexhaustible as Heaven and Earth, unending as the flow of rivers and streams; like the sun and moon, they end but to begin anew; like the four seasons, they pass away to return once more.
  5. There are not more than five primary colors (blue, yellow, red, white, and black), yet in combination they produce more hues than can ever been seen.
  6. In battle, there are not more than two methods of attack--the direct and the indirect; yet these two in combination give rise to an endless series of maneuvers.
  7. The direct and the indirect lead on to each other in turn. It is like moving in a circle--you never come to an end. Who can exhaust the possibilities of their combination?
  8. Hiding order beneath the cloak of disorder is simply a question of subdivision; concealing courage under a show of timidity presupposes a fund of latent energy; masking strength with weakness is to be effected by tactical dispositions.
  9. Thus one who is skillful at keeping the enemy on the move maintains deceitful appearances, according to which the enemy will act. He sacrifices something, that the enemy may snatch at it.
  10. By holding out baits, he keeps him on the march; then with a body of picked men he lies in wait for him.
