Sun Tzu

Datum narození: 543 př. n. l.
Datum úmrtí: 495 př. n. l.
Další jména: Sun-c’

Sun-c’ působil jako vojenský poradce či vojevůdce ve státě Wu na území dnešní Číny. Je autorem legendárního traktátu Umění války, který je považován za jednu z nejstarších knih o strategii a taktice vůbec. Ve svém díle klade velký důraz nejen na kvalitní analýzu, plánování a přípravu celého tažení, ale také na použití lsti, umění manipulace s protivníkem, popřípadě využití překvapivého prvku.

„Umění války nás učí nedoufat, že nepřítel nepřijde, ale spoléhat se na to, že jsme připraveni ho přivítat; nedoufat, že nezaútočí, ale spoléhat se, že jsme svá postavení učinili nedobytnými.“

—  Sun Tzu

„To know your Enemy, you must become your Enemy.“

—  Sun Tzu
Misattributed, This is sometimes attributed to Sun Tzu in combination with the above quote, as well as alone, but it too has not been sourced to any published translation of The Art of War, though it is similar in concept to his famous statement in Ch. 3 : "It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles..."

„Fear is the true enemy, the only enemy.“

—  Sun Tzu
Misattributed, Attributed implicitly to Sun Tzu by "William Riker" in the episode The Last Outpost of the TV program Star Trek: The Next Generation, but no source for this quote predates the episode's airing in 1987.

„All men can see these tactics whereby I conquer, but what none can see is the strategy out of which victory is evolved.“

—  Sun Tzu
Chapter VI · Weaknesses and Strengths, 人皆知我所以勝之形,而莫知吾所以制勝之形。

„The true objective of war is peace.“

—  Sun Tzu
Misattributed, This attributed to Sun Tzu and his book The Art of War. Actually James Clavell’s foreword in The Art of War http://www.scribd.com/doc/42222505/The-Art-Of-War states http://www.collegetermpapers.com/TermPapers/History_Other/Sun_Tzu_vs_The_Wisdom_of_the_Desert.shtml, “’the true object of war is peace.’” Therefore the quote is stated by James Clavell, but the true origin of Clavell's quotation is unclear. Nonetheless the essence of the quote, that a long war exhausts a state and therefore ultimately seeking peace is in the interest of the warring state, is true, as Sun Tzu in Chapter II Waging Wars says that "There is no instance of a country having benefited from prolonged warfare. It is only one who is thoroughly acquainted with the evils of war that can thoroughly understand the profitable way of carrying it on." This has been interpreted by Lionel Giles http://www.dutchjoens.info/SunTzu%20-%20Art%20of%20War.pdf as "Only one who knows the disastrous effects of a long war can realize the supreme importance of rapidity in bringing it to a close." Dr. Hiroshi Hatanaka, President of Kobe College, Nishinomiya, Hyōgo, Japan is recorded as saying "the real objective of war is peace" in Pacific Stars and Stripes Ryukyu Edition, Tokyo, Japan (10 February 1949), Page 2, Column 2.

„For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill.“

—  Sun Tzu
Chapter III · Strategic Attack, 是故百戰百勝,非善之善者也;不戰而屈人之兵,善之善者也。 Variant translations Hence to fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting. The best victory is when the opponent surrenders of its own accord before there are any actual hostilities... It is best to win without fighting.

„It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.“

—  Sun Tzu
Chapter III · Strategic Attack, 知彼知己,百戰不殆;不知彼而知己,一勝一負;不知彼,不知己,每戰必殆 Variant translations If you know others and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know others but know yourself, you win one and lose one; if you do not know others and do not know yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle. Know your enemy and know yourself, find naught in fear for 100 battles. Know yourself but not your enemy, find level of loss and victory. Know not thy enemy nor yourself, wallow in defeat every time. Literal translation: Know [the] other, know [the] self, hundred battles without danger; not knowing [the] other but know [the] self, one win one loss; not knowing [the] other, not knowing [the] self, every battle must [be] lost.

„A leader leads by example not by force.“

—  Sun Tzu
Chapter IX · Movement and Development of Troops, 令素行以教其民,则民服。令不素行以教其民,则民不服。令素行者,与民相得也。

„Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Etiam egestas wisi a erat. Morbi imperdiet, mauris ac auctor dictum.“
