I was working on a deadline. There were only a few days left before the grand auction (more on this later) when these magnificent warriors would find new homes to guard. It was late at night before I came to The Golden Warrior. He gleamed under the lights of the city, a testament that history was still within our midst. The Sun Tzu’s quote about knowing oneself is the pivotal message of The Golden Warrior – a strategy that continues to be relevant within our time period.
“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”
