Sun Tzu vs Machiavelli

Sun Tzu, playing cards: "Know your enemy and know yourself and you can fight a hundred battles without disaster. This is how i will defeat you Machiavelli."

Machiavelli: "One must be a fox to recognize traps, and a lion to frighten wolves, Sun Tzu."

Sun Tzu: "Ah yes, but i always appear weak when i am strong, and strong when i am weak."

Machiavelli: "He who seeks to deceive will always find someone who will allow himself to be deceived, but i'm afraid it is not i."

Sun Tzu: "If you wait by the river long enough, the bodies of your enemies will float by."

Machiavelli: "But you are forgetting the most important lesson of warfare: life is short and we all must die."
Sun Tzu: "Ah yes, but what does that actually mean for the game?"

Machiavelli, angrily: "It means: play your god damn turn already! Why do you always take an hour?"

Sun Tzu: "Fine, geez, okay. You took just as long, calm down. Queens?"
Machiavelli: "Go fish."
"If I say enough wise quotes, my opponent is bound to make a mistake."
