Hope is a waking dream.

-Aristotle
Aristotle

Happiness is the settling of the soul into its most appropriate spot.

Aristotle
Inasmuch as every family is a part of a state, and these relationships are the parts of a family, and the virtue of the part must have regard to the virtue of the whole, women and children must be trained by education with an eye to the constitution, if the virtues of either of them are supposed to make any difference in the virtues of the state. And they must make a difference: for the children grow up to be citizens, and half the free persons in a state are women.
Aristotle

It is the mark of an educated mind to expect that amount of exactness which the nature of the particular subject admits. It is equally unreasonable to accept merely probable conclusions from a mathematician and to demand strict demonstration from an orator.

Aristotle
Fortune favours the bold.
Aristotle

It is our choice of good or evil that determines our character, not our opinion about good or evil.

Aristotle
Good habits formed at youth make all the difference.
Aristotle

People never know each other until they have eaten a certain amount of salt together.

Aristotle
How strange it is that Socrates, after having made the children common, should hinder lovers from carnal intercourse only, but should permit love and familiarities between father and son or between brother and brother, than which nothing can be more unseemly, since even without them love of this sort is improper. How strange, too, to forbid intercourse for no other reason than the violence of the pleasure, as though the relationship of father and son or of brothers with one another made no difference.
Aristotle

It is their character indeed that makes people who they are. But it is by reason of their actions that they are happy or the reverse.

Aristotle
It is clearly better that property should be private, but the use of it common; and the special business of the legislator is to create in men this benevolent disposition.
