Topic: Help! My boss asked me to find a short quote summarizing...

the concept of "divide and conquer". He suggested that I try Sun Tzu or Clausewitz. I've found a few things, but he wants something short and concise. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Brenda

Topic: Julius Caesar

I believe Julius Caesar was the greatest practitionerof Divide & Conquer (the Gallic Wars is a good example). However I have not been able to find an exact quote by him explaining the tactic or anything of the like. Maybe try a deeper more extensive search about Julius Caesar and see if you can find anything.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help, good luck.

How about more of a business genre such as:

Great wits are sure to madness near allied, and thin partitions do their bounds divide.

That was Julius Caesar, guys. He would say: " divide et impera ", or divide and rule ( not conquer ).
Some historians report it as "divide ut impera", which is " divide to rule", but the former seems to be the real one. Hope i ve been helpful.
