Love is the cause of unity in all things.

-Aristotle
Aristotle

The activity of happiness must occupy an entire lifetime; for one swallow does not a summer make.

Aristotle
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

A gentleman is not disturbed by anything

Aristotle
We are what we do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.
Aristotle

Aristocracy is that form of government in which education and discipline are qualifications for suffrage and office holding.

Aristotle
Those who are not angry at the things they should be angry at are thought to be fools, and so are those who are not angry in the right way, at the right time, or with the right persons.
Aristotle

Metaphor is halfway between the unintelligible and the commonplace.

Aristotle
For contemplation is both the highest form of activity (since the intellect is the highest thing in us, and the objects that it apprehends are the highest things that can be known), and also it is the most continuous, because we are more capable of continuous contemplation than we are of any practical activity.
Aristotle

When we look at the matter from another point of view, great caution would seem to be required. For the habit of lightly changing the laws is an evil, and, when the advantage is small, some errors both of lawgivers and rulers had better be left; the citizen will not gain so much by making the change as he will lose by the habit of disobedience.

Aristotle
Nature operates in the shortest way possible.
