Engage people with what they expect; it is what they are able to discern and confirms their projections. It settles them into predictable patterns of response, occupying their minds while you wait for the extraordinary moment — that which they cannot anticipate.

Sun Tzu, The Art of War  

 

When you surround an army, leave an outlet free. Do not press a desperate foe too hard.

Sun Tzu, The Art of War 

 

The art of war is of vital importance to the State. It is a matter of life and death, a road either to safety or to ruin. Hence it is a subject of inquiry which can on no account be neglected.

Sun Tzu, The Art of War 

 

 

 

 

Ok I admit, none of them are actually up there in my my favourite quotes, but being as you set a theme I thought I'd stick with it and those all seem quite apt for the circumstances :yinyang:

we need more philosophers in positions of power or that can influence the masses

 

C'mon the truckers!!!!

When I was a teenager working all the hours I could to earn a living I had a boss who was known as Tony the bastard, behind his back as well as to his face, anyway the quote from T the B goes…

 

Shut up or Fuck off. 
 

Never a wiser word said.

 

Take it easy. Jj :yinyang:

Fighting for peace is like fucking for chastity.

 

(various versions of the quote have various attributions, I think George Carlin said it but I'm not sure if he said it first).

Fight wars not war - Crass, probably Penny Rimbaud but it was years ago and it's not easy to find out.

Just because I can, it doesn't mean I will. Just because I can't, it doesn't mean I won't.

I like a lot of Crass lyrics, Jesus died for his own sins not mine is another favourite of mine :)
