Best Sun Tzu Quotes Art of War, Leadership and Technoblade

Sun Tzu -

Chinese military leader, strategist, philosopher, and author Sun Tzu lived in the Eastern Zhou era. The Art of War, a significant treatise of military tactics that has influenced both Western and East Asian ideology and combat thinking, is traditionally attributed to Sun Tzu. Instead of focusing on war itself, it places a considerably greater emphasis on alternatives to combat and even war, such as delaying tactics, using spies, forging and maintaining alliances, using deception, and being prepared to bow, at least temporarily, to more formidable adversaries.

As a renowned historical and martial figure, Sun Tzu is highly regarded in Chinese and East Asian cultures. Sun Wu was his birth name, and outside of his family, he went by the nickname name Changqing. His more well-known nickname, Sun Tzu, is Chinese honorific that means to "Master Sun."

The historicity of Sun Tzu is debatable. He was a minister to King Hel├╝ of Wu, according to Sima Qian, a historian of the Han dynasty, and his lifespan was between 544 and 496 BC. Based on its manner of authoring and its depictions of battle, modern researchers who accept his historicity place the preserved text of The Art of War in the later Warring States period. According to conventional wisdom, Sun Bin, a grandchild of the general, produced a work on military strategy called The Art of War. Prior to the 1972 unearthing of Sun Bin's treatise, some scholars thought Sun Wu and Sun Bin were the same person because they were both referred to as Sun Tzu in traditional Chinese writings.
