笑裡藏刀/Xiao Li Cang Dao – Hide a Knife Behind a Smile

原文:信而安之,陰以圖之;備而後動,勿使有變,剛中柔外也。

Original Text: Profess your faith & calm him, secretly scheme against him; prepare & then move, don’t allow changes, this is hardness inside softness outside. 

解析:使敵人想信我方重於友誼,而使之麻痺鬆懈,暗中積極策劃破敵之計,經過充分準備後突然行動,不讓敵人有所察覺,內藏殺機,外示柔順。

Analysis: Make the enemy trust you by attaching importance to friendship, causing him to relax & become negligent, while actively scheming in secret to destroy his plans, after going through sufficient preparations suddenly move without allowing the enemy to become aware, internally conceal your intent to kill, externally show gentle compliance.
