9.41 Chapter: The Army on the March 9.41 Translation: He who exercises no forethought but makes light of his opponents is sure to be captured by them. CommentaryAlways think before acting. Battles are won in the planning, even though the plans may have to vary once battle commences. If you are not prepared for their moves, then their moves will likely be successful. All it takes is one failure on your part and you lose the battle.
