Sun Tzu (兵法家)

070212]

“The art of war teaches us to rely not on the likelihood of the enemy’s not coming, but on our own readiness to receive him; not on the chance of his not attacking, but rather on the fact that we have made our position unassailable.”

— Sun Tzu, Military Strategist

「故用兵之法,無恃其不來,恃吾有以待也﹔無恃其不攻,恃吾有所不可攻也。」– 孫子 (兵法家)

  • rely (v.) 依賴,依靠。例:The organization relies on your leadership. (這個組織依賴你的領導。) likelihood (n.) 可能性。例:There is little likelihood of his getting the job. (他得到那工作的機會不高。) readiness (n.) 準備;ready (adj.)。unassailable (adj.) 無懈可擊的。
  • 孫子 (535 BC – ??) 出生於春秋末年齊國,因不堪爭戰頻繁而南下吳國,務農為業,並在此時完成曠世巨著《孫子兵法》,後來被伍子胥引薦吳王闔閭,攻滅強楚一戰成名,後來又助闔閭之子夫差治國練兵,助其大敗越王勾踐,晚年退隱江湖。
  • 解讀:在問題還沒發生前就準備好,防患於未來,而不是在問題發生時,像消防隊般疲於補救。
