Quote of the Day : Major General Carl von Clausewitz

“Action in war is not continuous but spasmodic. Violent clashes are interrupted by periods of observation, during which both sides are on the defensive. But usually one side is more strongly motivated, which tends to affect its behaviour: the offensive element will dominate, and usually maintain its continuity of action.”

Clausewitz, On War. 1832
