Know your enemy and you may be able to defeat him. Understand your enemy and you may be able to persuade him.
"If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes." - Albert Einstein
