Hence the saying: The enlightened ruler lays his plans well ahead; the good general cultivates his resources.

  • Move not unless you see an advantage; use not your troops unless there is something to be gained; fight not unless the position is critical.
  • No ruler should put troops into the field merely to gratify his own spleen; no general should fight a battle simply out of pique.
  • If it is to your advantage, make a forward move; if not, stay where you are.

++++++++++++++++++

Do not let emotions control you. Maintain your patience through self-discipline in these circumstances:

  • If several innings pass with no advancement, an advantage will soon become available.
  • A complicated table layout is handled ball by ball.
  • Good luck that benefits your opponent now will change to bad luck later.
  • Do not think a few successes will extend indefinitely into the future.
  • Do not think that a few failures will extend indefinitely into the future.
