Aristotle (384-322 B.C.)

  • Plausible impossibilities should be preferred to unconvincing possibilities.
  • It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
  • Misfortune shows those who are not really friends.
  • What is a friend? A single soul in two bodies.
  • If things do not turn out as we wish, we should wish for them as they turn out.
  • The beauty of the soul shines out when a man bears with composure one heavy mischance after another, not because he does not feel them, but because he is a man of high and heroic temper.
  • All men by nature desire knowledge.
  • We cannot learn without pain.
  • The energy of the mind is the essence of life.

  • What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies.
  • We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
  • Dignity does not consist in possessing honors, but in deserving them.
  • Hope is a waking dream.
  • The mathematical sciences particularly exhibit order, symmetry, and limitation;
    and these are the greatest forms of the beautiful.
  • Philosophy is the science which considers truth.
  • Friendship is a single soul living in two bodies.
  • Misfortune shows those who are not really friends.
  • I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies;
    for the hardest victory is over self.
