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 (544 BC-496 BC)
Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that is not gold.
Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910)
You may deceive all the people part of the time, and part of the people all the time, but not all the people all the time.
Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)
