Stratagem 26: Point at the Mulberry Tree but Curse the Locust Tree


Convey your intentions and opinions indirectly.    


Using subtle phrasing or cues to get what you want. Instead of saying, “I want a car,” you mention, to someone who cares, “I’d love to not have to take the bus,” and act pleasantly surprised when they hand you the new keys.     


Know thine enemy.
