I an trying to read this book. Yes, I use the word “trying” as this is definitely not a easy book to read. This is the English Translation and sometimes, the sentence sounds weird. It is still reading in progress but one particular one particular tactic strikes me the most
“To secure ourselves against defeat lies in our hands, but the opportunity of defeating enemy is provided by the enemy himself”
In essence, one can’t prevent one from defeat but this does not mean you will defeat your enemy. Rather, the enemy’s downfall is due to his own weakness/doing.
So, to defense is to attack ! As one awaits the chance to wait for the enemy to make mistake!
