"If you know the enemy and know yourself,
you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.
If you know yourself but not the enemy,
for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.
If you know neither the enemy nor yourself,
you will succumb in every battle."
by:
Sun Tzu
(c.500-320 B.C.) name used by the unknown Chinese authors of the sophisticated treatise on philosophy, logistics, espionage, strategy and tactics known as 'The Art of War'
Date:
500 B.C.

    I don't want to battle, I want to be friends. If you really know yourself,  don't you know you yourself are the one that you are at opposition with?
