Lao Tzu say: "I dare not advance an inch but retreat a foot instead."
But Lao Tzu also say:
"A man most conversant in the rites acts, but when no one responds
rolls up his sleeves and resorts to persuasion by force."
Long story short, there are no universal solutions. It is better to
win without contending, but it is better to contend than to lose -
when something of real value is at stake and nothing else serves. To
fight from vanity or to obtain precedence over others, or simply
because one is afraid, betrays too-close kinship with the simpler
animals - but without their innocence.
"When victorious in war, one should observe the rites of mourning."
