Aristotle

Where it is in our power to act, it is also in our power to not act.

Aristotle
People of superior refinement and of active disposition identify happiness with honour; for this is roughly speaking, the end of political life.
Aristotle

Money was established for exchange, but interest causes it to be reproduced by itself. Therefore this way of earning money is greatly in conflict with the natural law.

Aristotle
If men are given food, but no chastisement nor any work, they become insolent.
Aristotle

Happiness is something final and complete in itself, as being the aim and end of all practical activities whatever .... Happiness then we define as the active exercise of the mind in conformity with perfect goodness or virtue.

Aristotle
Shipping magnate of the 20th century If women didn't exist, all the money in the world would have no meaning.
Aristotle

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

Aristotle
If you see a man approaching with the obvious intent of doing you good, run for your life. Consider pleasures as they depart, not as they come.
Aristotle

... a science must deal with a subject and its properties.

Aristotle
Property should be in a certain sense common, but, as a general rule, private; for, when every one has a distinct interest, men will not complain of one another, and they will make more progress, because every one will be attending to his own business.
