Lacrosse – Anything & Everything – What else is there?

Lacrosse Wisdom

Posted by Barry Marenberg on April 14, 2011

Saw this on another lacrosse website and it really hit home.  So much truth in something written over 2000 years ago!:

“Invincibility lies in the defense, the possibility of victory in the attack.” 
- Sun Tzu

“Sun Tzu – The Art Of War” is an ancient Chinese text, over 2000 years old, covering in-depth the mechanical, philosophical, and strategic aspects of warfare.

The exact identity of the author is unknown and the best estimate of when it was written is between 400-320 B.C. Yet the collection of essays that makes up the Art of War is still revered by the worlds greatest military minds and in many ways is as relevant today as it was over 2 millennia ago. And not only is the Art of War relevant to warfare, but in a philosophical and strategic level, is relevant to sports like lacrosse and football, and in some ways to any form of competition.
