The wise man does not expose himself needlessly to danger, since there are few things for which he cares sufficiently; but he is willing, in great crises, to give even his life - knowing that under certain conditions it is not worthwhile to live. Aristotle quote
The virtue of justice consists in moderation, as regulated by wisdom.
The soul never thinks without a picture. Aristotle quote
The secret to humour is surprise. Aristotle quote
The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet. Aristotle quote
The most perfect political community is one in which the middle class is in control, and outnumbers both of the other classes.
The more thou dost advance, the more thy feet pitfalls will meet. The Path that leadeth on is lighted by one fire- the light of daring burning in the heart. The more one dares, the more he shall obtain. The more he fears, the more that light shall pale - and that alone can guide. Aristotle quote

Greek philosopher, 384BC - 322BC
