Quote by Sun Tzu
If your opponent is of choleric temper, irritate him.
This quote advises individuals to intentionally provoke or agitate someone who has a quick-tempered and easily irritable nature. By deliberately aggravating such an opponent, it suggests that one can potentially gain an advantage or upper hand in a situation, whether it be a conflict or competition. The underlying idea is that by exploiting the opponent's anger and impulsive reactions, one can disrupt their focus, decision-making abilities, and overall effectiveness.
