I’m ashamed to say that I have not finished the whole thing. I get easily distracted, which is why I’m currently in the middle of about three or four different books, none of which are nearly finished (though in my defense, two of them are re-reads). Anyway, as many probably know, the book has been quoted by strategists ranging from the financial world to the political and everything in between. I have my own reasons for liking these quotes, as I’m sure many who read them do too.
Chapter 2.7 (6): “War is like unto fire: those who will not put aside weapons are themselves consumed by them”
Chapter 4.3: “It follows that those skilled in war can make themselves invincible but cannot cause an enemy to be certainly vulnerable”
