Art Of War Quotes By Sun Tzu

Sun Tzu Art of War Quotes

One of the most famous books for both the battlefield and board room is The Art of War by Sun Tzu. Written about 2,500 years ago, this Chinese military treatise became very influential in both warfare and the business world. It's even become a must-read for many competitive sports professionals. The main lessons people in the corporate or startup world focus on include how to outsmart your rivals and avoid unnecessary "battles". There are countless tactical tips, quotes and interesting perspectives in this quick but thorough piece of literature known as The Art Of War. It's still used in board rooms around the world! 

Here are some of my favorite motivational quotes from Sun Tzu in the book The Art Of War:

1)  "Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat."

2)  "Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak."

3)  "Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night." 

4)  "There is no instance of a nation benefiting from prolonged warfare."

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

6)  "In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity."
