Whose quotation?

Who said:" Keep your friend close and your enemy closer"?

已更新項目:

I used to think it's from Sun-tzu. If someone can tell me from which chapter it will be cool.

I don't believe this quote is from any movie...

    This has been attributed to the Chinese writer Sun Tzu.

    I looked at this a little bit closer and I think I found the English translation of Sun Tzu's works to where this quote is actually derived:

    40. "If our troops are no more in number than the enemy,

    that is amply sufficient; it only means that no direct attack

    can be made. What we can do is simply to concentrate all

    our available strength, keep a close watch on the enemy,

    and obtain reinforcements."

    You can find all the chapters of his book at the following link, these are English translations so some of the meaning can get "lost in translation." http://www.yuni.com/library/suntzu.htm

    I hope this helps your query!
