“And what they say about a disease applies here. What is at first easy to cure but difficult to recognize is later, left unrecognized and untreated, easy to recognize but difficult to cure.”

Attributed to Niccolò Machiavelli, The Prince

(In this context we are talking about military operations, either at the strategic or tactical level)
