Quote of the month: The art of intuition

In der Tat, fähig zu sein, etwas zu tun, bevor es existiert, etwas zu erahnen, bevor es aktiv wird, etwas zu sehen, bevor es hervortritt, dies sind drei Fähigkeiten, die sich in Abhängigkeit voneinander entwickeln. Dann wird nichts erahnt, sondern durch Einsicht verstanden, nichts wird unternommen, ohne dass eine Reaktion einträte, und nirgendwo geht man hin, ohne daraus Nutzen zu ziehen.

(Sun Tsu, taoistischer Philosoph in:

“Die Kunst des Krieges”)

China 627                                             Bridge at Summer Palace in Beijing

Indeed, being able to take action before something exists, to foresee something before it becomes active, to notice something before it erupts, these are three abilities that evolve depending on each other. Then nothing is foreseen but understood by one’s insight, nothing is undertaken without an expected reaction, and you go nowhere without taking benefit of it.

(Sun Tsu, Taoist philosopher in:

“The Art of War”)
