so that funny troll guy inspired me when he said
there is not more rises that which does not want to hear

and then the other dude said 'you should write fortune cookies'

but the point is,
What quotes, actual or inspired, or would you insert, into a fortune cookie, from the universe of Napoleon Total War?

like an obvious one would be "War is a matter of vital importance to the State, the province of life or death, the road to survival or ruin."etc

or "He who knows the art of the direct and the indirect approach will be victorious. Such is the art of manouvering"
[The Art of War, Griffith translation]

or maybe some clauswicz ones, or more period appropriate stuff. whatcha got.
