The Art Of Strategy
A New Translation of Sun Tzu’s Classic The Art of War
By R.L. Wing
” When the opposition withdraws, never interfere; when surrounding the opposition, leave an opening; when the opponent is desperate, never press. Such is the execution of an Artful Strategy.”
(544 BC-496 BC)
Hermit Poet’s Comments: During negotiations, it is important to allow the other disadvantaged side to retreat gracefully. It is not necessary and in bad taste to rub the face of the losing party into the dirt. The goal is for both sides to feel like they accomplished as much as as they could, with the resources they each had available.
