Chapter 61

  • This chapter takes the idea of humility and applies it to the way that large, powerful countries ought to behave.
  • If large countries are humble, then they'll retain their influence.
  • If large countries spend all their time bossing around all the other countries, they'll eventually fall and will be taken over by the smaller countries they used to pick on.
  • You can take this advice and apply it to your own life as well.
  • When you're the boss, don't be a jerk to your employees.
  • When you're rising up through the ranks, don't be ruthless.
  • You never know when you might lose your power and need a helping hand.
