Below are some of my favorite quotes from Ari (as I love to affectionately call Aristotle).
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. AristotleHappiness depends upon ourselves. 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
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies. – Aristotle
What it lies in our power to do, it lies in our power not to do. – Aristotle
Anyone can become angry — that is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way — this is not easy. – Aristotle
I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self. – Aristotle
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. – Aristotle
