Translation:

Therefore, just as water retains no constant shape, so in warfare there are no constant conditions.

Commentary

Water is fluid. It does not have the fixed shape of rock. It cannot move a fixed rock, but it can wear it down. It can roll stones out of the way and carry sand along with it.

Success is gained not just by grand strategy but also by adapting to the situation on the field of play.
