a powerful intent. Timidity
can conceal iron will.
Fragility can mask
the superior warrior
lures and deceives, falls back
and then surges, drawing the opponent
this way and that into the path of his
strikes. His emphasis is not on the
effect of one movement, but
rather the weight of his
uses his soldiers
like a multitude of arrows
and stones, sometimes keeping
them still, sometimes releasing them
in a terrible storm, like boulders
hurtling down a steep mountain.
This is the way to shape
energy in war.
