a Fascinating quote of today:

The great general is one who finds a way to win without fighting a single battle.

(cited from the Art of War, 孫子兵法 Sūn Zǐ Bīng Fǎ in Chinese) 😉

I’ve got this when I watched the History channel this afternoon on TV. I find it so fascinating because I feel like everybody is living in such a competitive environment in HK here. Most of the time, people like to compare and compete against each other. Then this would eventually generate a lot of conflicts in any kinds and misunderstandings.

After watching the programme, I thought, sometimes if we could step back a little and try to avoid wars between anybody, wouldn’t it be a win-win situation and we would all win eventually? I think this is how people can build up their positive relationships with each other in this crazily competitive Hong Kong situation nowadays.

Anyway, Stay Cool, Stay Positive and PEACE! 😉

P.S. I’ve found this wonderful site to learn the Art of War in simple English too. Check this out!

A quote to start your day every morning!
