Commuting can be difficult for many students. From dealing with unreliable public transportation to the FOMO you get from being off campus on the weekend, the commuter struggle is very real. Luckily, sixth century BC general and philosopher Sun Tzu offers some great advice for battling the commuter blues in the Art of War.
1."One who does not know the enemy but knows himself will sometimes win, sometimes lose. One who does not know the enemy and does not know himself will be in danger in every battle." [03.24]
2."Therefore, if able, appear unable; if active, appear inactive; if near, appear far; if far, appear near." [01.14]
3."One who knows how to use both large and small forces will be victorious" [03.19]
4.“If you take care of your health, avoid fatigue, you will be united, and will build strength.” [11.22]
5."What enables the enlightened rulers and good generals to conquer the enemy at every move and achieve extraordinary success is foreknowledge." [13.05]
6."What enables the enlightened rulers and good generals to conquer the enemy at every move and achieve extraordinary success is foreknowledge." [03.08]
7."He looks upon his troops as children, and they will advance to the deepest valleys. He looks upon his troops as his own children, and they will die with him." [10.19]
8."Warfare is the Way of deception." [01.13]
9." Even in the midst of the turbulence of battle, the fighting seemingly chaotic, they are not confused. Even in the midst of the turmoil of battle, the troops seemingly going around in circles, they cannot be defeated." [05.11]
10."The energy of the army can be dampened, and the general's mind can be dampened. Therefore, in the morning, energy is high, but during the day energy begins to flag; and in the evening, energy is exhausted." [07.20]
