The Art of Kidmin War: Observations from the Front Lines

  • The Letter of the day is "W", which stands for "Whaaaaaat?"... or more accurately, "War" -- the Art of War
  • Opportunities multiply as they are seized - 1 Chronicles 4:9,10
  • The enemy of my enemy is my friend. – Galatians 6:10
  • The control of a large force is the same principle as the control of a few men: it is merely a question of dividing up their numbers. – Nehemiah 3
  • If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself, but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle. – Proverbs 4:23
  • Do not repeat the tactics which have gained you one victory, but let your methods be regulated by the infinite variety of circumstances. – Amos 4:13
