Quote of the Day


Se magis consuetudine sua quam merito eorum civitatem conservaturum, si prius quam murum aries attigisset se dedidissent; sed deditionis nullam esse condicionem nisi armis traditis. That he should spare the city in accordance with his custom rather than giving them what they deserved if they should surrender themselves before the battering-ram should touch the wall; but that there was no condition of surrender, except upon their arms being delivered up.

—Julius Caesar, Commentarii de bello Gallico, II, 32

Quote of the Day


微乎微乎,至于无形;神乎神乎,至于无声;故能为敌之司命。Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent’s fate.

—Sun Tzu
