From Wikipedia -


Quote
Warfare is the Tao of deception.
Thus:
Although you are capable, display incapability.
When committed to employing your forces, feign inactivity.
When your objective is nearby, make it appear distant; when distant, create the illusion of being nearby.
Display profits to entice them.
Create disorder in their forces and take them.
If they are substantial, prepare for them.
If they are strong, avoid them.
If they are angry, perturb them.
Be deferential to foster their arrogance.
If they are rested, force them to exert themselves.
If they are united, cause them to be separated.
Attack where they are unprepared.
Go forth where they will not expect it.
These are the ways military strategists are victorious. They cannot be spoken of in advance.


The principles are popular in affair busting because they are applicable

"Never speculate about your opponent; always seek facts.
Don't listen to rumors, seek information from those who know.
Check out the truth of everything before moving.
For if you have sought lies, you have sought failure."


Quote
"Those who are afraid retreat.
Those who are brave grow greater.
Never fear, always grow."


Quote
Ponder and deliberate before you make a move.

Disciplined and calm, to await the appearance of disorder and hubbub amongst the enemy: this is the art of retaining self-possession.

Do not swallow a bait offered by the enemy.

SUCH IS THE ART OF WARFARE.


Quote
What enables the wise sovereign and the good general to strike and conquer, and achieve things beyond the reach of ordinary men, is foreknowledge.

Now this foreknowledge cannot be elicited by spirits; it cannot be obtained inductively from experience, nor by any deductive calculation.

Knowledge of the enemy's dispositions can only be obtained from other men.

Be subtle! Be subtle! and use your spies for every kind of business.

Spies are a most important element in war, because on them depends an army's ability to move.
