A victorious army first wins and then seeks battle. A defeated army first battles and then seeks victory.
~ Sun Tzu
Comment: This is one of the most deep and thoughtful quotes, which is slightly different from all the other struggle quotes. Like all Sun Tzu teaching, he is telling you put your effort in the right place. You could struggle by fighting it out with your Might, or you could do so by first spending time on the strategy to win it. Don’t doubt his way to be the easier way. They are the surer way, but definitely not the easier way.

If you succumb to the temptation of using violence in the struggle, unborn generations will be the recipients of a long and desolate night of bitterness, and your chief legacy to the future will be an endless reign of meaningless chaos.

    life’s a gift but a struggle for the truth,
    living and experiencing regardless of the situation is a treat.
    tests are given, ways of living are shown.
    Truth is the wisdom of knowledge written for you.
    Death is inevitable, the only way truth will be declared.
