PostSubject: Quotes by Aristotle   Wed Nov 26, 2008 3:36 pm

A constitution is the arrangement of magistracies in a state. 
Aristotle 

A friend to all is a friend to none. 
Aristotle 

A great city is not to be confounded with a populous one. 
Aristotle 

A sense is what has the power of receiving into itself the sensible forms of things without the matter, in the way in which a piece of wax takes on the impress of a signet-ring without the iron or gold. 
Aristotle 

A tragedy is a representation of an action that is whole and complete and of a certain magnitude. A whole is what has a beginning and middle and end. 
Aristotle 

A true friend is one soul in two bodies. 
Aristotle 

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. 
Aristotle 

All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion, desire. 
Aristotle 

All men by nature desire knowledge. 
Aristotle 

All men by nature desire to know. 
Aristotle 

All paid jobs absorb and degrade the mind. 
Aristotle 

All virtue is summed up in dealing justly. 
Aristotle 

Anybody can become angry - that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way - that is not within everybody's power and is not easy. 
Aristotle 

Anyone can become angry - that is easy, but to be angry with the right person at the right time, and for the right purpose and in the right way - that is not within everyone's power and that is not easy. 
Aristotle 

At his best, man is the noblest of all animals; separated from law and justice he is the worst. 
Aristotle 

Bad men are full of repentance. 
Aristotle 

Bashfulness is an ornament to youth, but a reproach to old age. 
Aristotle 

Both oligarch and tyrant mistrust the people, and therefore deprive them of their arms. 
Aristotle 

Bring your desires down to your present means. Increase them only when your increased means permit. 
Aristotle 

Change in all things is sweet. 
Aristotle 

Character may almost be called the most effective means of persuasion. 
Aristotle 

Courage is a mean with regard to fear and confidence. 
Aristotle 

Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees the others. 
Aristotle 

Democracy arises out of the notion that those who are equal in any respect are equal in all respects; because men are equally free, they claim to be absolutely equal. 
Aristotle 

Democracy is when the indigent, and not the men of property, are the rulers. 
Aristotle 

Different men seek after happiness in different ways and by different means, and so make for themselves different modes of life and forms of government. 
Aristotle 

Dignity consists not in possessing honors, but in the consciousness that we deserve them. 
Aristotle 

Dignity does not consist in possessing honors, but in deserving them. 
Aristotle 

Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity. 
Aristotle 

Education is the best provision for old age. 
Aristotle 

Even when laws have been written down, they ought not always to remain unaltered. 
Aristotle 

Every art and every inquiry, and similarly every action and choice, is thought to aim at some good; and for this reason the good has rightly been declared to be that at which all things aim. 
Aristotle 

Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit. 
Aristotle 

Excellence, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean, relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. 
Aristotle 

Fear is pain arising from the anticipation of evil. 
Aristotle 

For as the eyes of bats are to the blaze of day, so is the reason in our soul to the things which are by nature most evident of all. 
Aristotle 

For one swallow does not make a summer, nor does one day; and so too one day, or a short time, does not make a man blessed and happy. 
Aristotle 

For though we love both the truth and our friends, piety requires us to honor the truth first. 
Aristotle 

Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies. 
Aristotle 

Friendship is essentially a partnership. 
Aristotle 

Good habits formed at youth make all the difference. 
Aristotle 

Happiness depends upon ourselves. 
Aristotle 

He who can be, and therefore is, another's, and he who participates in reason enough to apprehend, but not to have, is a slave by nature. 
Aristotle 

He who hath many friends hath none. 
Aristotle 

He who is to be a good ruler must have first been ruled. 
Aristotle 

He who is unable to live in society, or who has no need because he is sufficient for himself, must be either a beast or a god. 
Aristotle 

Hence poetry is something more philosophic and of graver import than history, since its statements are rather of the nature of universals, whereas those of history are singulars. 
Aristotle 

Homer has taught all other poets the art of telling lies skillfully. 
Aristotle 

Hope is a waking dream. 
Aristotle 

Hope is the dream of a waking man. 
Aristotle

Aristotle 

I have gained this from philosophy: that I do without being commanded what others do only from fear of the law.

Aristotle 

In making a speech one must study three points: first, the means of producing persuasion; second, the language; third the proper arrangement of the various parts of the speech. 
Aristotle 

In nine cases out of ten, a woman had better show more affection than she feels. 
Aristotle 

In poverty and other misfortunes of life, true friends are a sure refuge. The young they keep out of mischief; to the old they are a comfort and aid in their weakness, and those in the prime of life they incite to noble deeds. 
Aristotle
