Stores & Tactics…

“The general must know how to get his men their rations and every other kind of stores needed for war. He must have imagination to originate plans- practical sense and energy to carry them through. He must be: observant, untiring, shrewd, kindly and cruel, simple, and crafty, a watchman and a robber, lavish and miserly, generous and stingy, rash and conservative. All these and many other qualities both natural and acquired he must have. He should also, as a matter of course, know his tactics; for a disorderly mob is no more an army than a heap of building materials is a house.”

Socrates (470 BCE to 399 BCE)

Socrates was a Greek philosopher whose way of life, character, and thought exerted a profound influence on ancient and modern philosophy.
