The Art Of War is an unforgettable military classic from far east that includes strategies which are not only usefull in warfare but in everyday life.
We live in a century where survival of the fittest still applies in a form where those who possess the highest power and reputation thrives and reigns. These are some of the quotations which are highly applicable to our daily battle.
“In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity”
“Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near”
“Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him”
“If he is taking his ease, give him no rest”
“Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are
“All warfare is based on deception”
“Supreme excellence consists of breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting.”
“Engage people with what they expect; it is what they are able to discern and confirms their projections. It settles them into predictable patterns of response, occupying their minds while you wait for the extraordinary moment — that which they cannot anticipate.”
“So in war, the way is to avoid what is strong, and strike at what is weak.”
Paris mon amour!
Paris has more to offer than its classical over crowded tourist attractions.
Here are my favorite trendy places in Paris to really get in to that parisienne vibe.
xx Palais Garnier
Its splendid architecture gets me hooked each and every time.
Here are some magnificence i captured.
Location: Place de l’Opéra
xx Avenue Montaigne
This avenue is a paradise where you can escape from the crowd of tourists in Champs-Elysées and dip yourself in high end luxury. You can also catch some beautifull sights of the Eiffel and crash into some celebrities in the famous café L’Avenue.
Your best hotel choice here is absoloutely Hotel Plaza Athenée.
Paris is really one of those citys that takes fine dining to a whole new level with its sense of luxury.
xx Le Cinq
Le Cinq aka the glamourous Michelin stared restaurant of the Four Seasons George V holds the true magnificence of 17th century France with its luxorious style and fine french cuisine. As expected the prices are high but worth all the glamour.
Location: Avenue George V
xx Le Costes
Le Costes stands out with its baroque styled decoration. This trendy place even has a glamourous parfumerie.
Saumon vapeur was my choice.
Location: Rue Saint Honoré
This ultimately trendy place redefines classyness with its simplistic style. L’avenue is perfect for crashing into some celebrities since its frequented quite often by superstars like Beyoncé, Jay-z and Kardashians. Its is perfect for either lunch or dinner.
My favorites are filet mignon and pasta with morels.
Location: Avenue Montagne
