A military strategist has this maxim:
“Never launch open attacks, but
Move into voids.”
Thus the army need not fight and may move easily.
It is not subjected to forced marches.
It defends with arms without using weapons.
It advances without hostilities, and
It occupies without fighting. –
There is no greater danger than attacking forewarned people.
When two armies clash,
It is the one animated with lowliness which wins.
