Know Thy Enemy

 If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
– Sun Tzu

    If ignorant both of your enemy and yourself, you are certain to be in peril. – Sun Tzu

    Good job OldMarine!

    • Justfolk says:

      It is only by listening, seeing, that we can understand the truth or falseness of something. If we listen or observe with care, we will be able to find out that which is below the surface of things, that which is ordinarily hidden when we only hear or look. It is important to listen, to observe, to take that quality of attention with us as we go about our daily lives.
      Karate-The Art of Empty Self, Webster-Doyle

  2. You can build a better strategy when you know your enemy. When you do not know your enemy you hope for an effective strategy. Remember the enemy also has a cause. Love the enemy but hate the premise of the offense.
