Chinese calligraphy -- Couplets composed by Zhuge Liang, prime minister of the Shu Kingdom in the Three Kingdoms Period, and one of the top Daoist political/military strategists in Chinese history. If you can win people's heart, you don't need wars; If you don't know the situation, you can't win any wars. 能攻心则反侧自消,从古知兵非好战; 不审势即宽严皆误,后来治蜀要深思。 Note: It is to win people's hearts not people's minds because most people don't think but responding by emotion and, sometimes, instinct.
