Top 10 Quotes by Aristotle

Aristotle

Love is the cause of unity in all things.

Aristotle
Not to get what you have set your heart on is almost as bad as getting nothing at all.
Aristotle

Evils draw men together.

Aristotle
The blood of a goat will shatter a diamond.
Aristotle

To appreciate the beauty of a snow flake, it is necessary to stand out in the cold.

Aristotle
Tools may be animate as well as inanimate; for instance, a ship's captain uses a lifeless rudder, but a living man for watch; for a servant is, from the point of view of his craft, categorized as one of its tools. So any piece of property can be regarded as a tool enabling a man to live, and his property is an assemblage of such tools; a slave is a sort of living piece of property; and like any other servant is a tool in charge of other tools.
Aristotle

Therefore the good man ought to be a lover of self, since he will then both benefit himself by acting nobly and aid his fellows; but the bad man ought not to be a lover of self, since he will follow his base passions, and so injure both himself and his neighbors. With the bad man therefore, what he does is not in accord with what he ought to do, but the good man does what he ought, since intelligence always chooses for itself that which is best, and the good man obeys his intelligence.

Aristotle
The Eyes are the organs of temptation, and the Ears are the organs of instruction.
Aristotle

The avarice of mankind is insatiable.

Aristotle
The energy of the mind is the essence of life.
