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
Aristotle

At his best, man is the noblest of all animals; separated from law and justice he is the worst. Aristotl

Aristotle
Since the branch of philosophy on which we are at present engaged differs from the others in not being a subject of merely intellectual interest — I mean we are not concerned to know what goodness essentially is, but how we are to become good men, for this alone gives the study its practical value — we must apply our minds to the solution of the problems of conduct.
Aristotle

Happiness depends on ourselves.

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

[this element], the seat of the appetites and of desire in general, does in a sense participate in principle, as being amenable and obedient to it

Aristotle
The senses are gateways to the intelligence. There is nothing in the intelligence which did not first pass through the senses.
Aristotle

Neither old people nor sour people seem to make friends easily; for there is little that is pleasant in them...

Aristotle
If there is any kind of animal which is female and has no male separate from it, it is possible that this may generate a young one from itself. No instance of this worthy of any credit has been observed up to the present at any rate, but one case in the class of fishes makes us hesitate. No male of the so-called erythrinus has ever yet been seen, but females, and specimens full of roe, have been seen. Of this, however, we have as yet no proof worthy of credit.
Aristotle

We ought to be able to persuade on opposite sides of a question; as also we ought in the case of arguing by syllogism: not that we should practice both, for it is not right to persuade to what is bad; but in order that the bearing of the case may not escape us, and that when another makes an unfair use of these reasonings, we may be able to solve them.

Aristotle
So, if we must give a general formula applicable to all kinds of soul, we must describe it as the first actuality [entelechy] of anatural organized body.
