Aristotle

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

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 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
