Love is the cause of unity in all things.

-Aristotle
Aristotle

Of the tyrant, spies and informers are the principal instruments. War is his favorite occupation, for the sake of engrossing the attention of the people, and making himself necessary to them as their leader.

Aristotle
Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity.
Aristotle

Where your talents and the needs of the world cross; there lies your vocation.

Aristotle
The high-minded man must care more for the truth than for what people think.
Aristotle

He is his own best friend and takes delight in privacy whereas the man of no virtue or ability is his own worst enemy and is afraid of solitude.

Aristotle
The life of theoretical philosophy is the best and happiest a man can lead. Few men are capable of it and then only intermittently. For the rest there is a second-best way of life, that of moral virtue and practical wisdom.
Aristotle

People become house builders through building houses, harp players through playing the harp. We grow to be just by doing things which are just.

Aristotle
A young man is not a proper hearer of lectures on political science; for he is inexperienced in the actions that occur in life, but its discussions start from these and are about these; and, further, since he tends to follow his passions, his study will be vain and unprofitable, because the end that is aimed at is not knowledge but action. And it makes no difference whether he is young in years or youthful in character.
Aristotle

Man first begins to philosophize when the necessities of life are supplied.

Aristotle
Nature herself, as has been often said, requires that we should be able, not only to work well, but to use leisure well; for, as I must repeat once again, the first principle of all action is leisure. Both are required, but leisure is better than occupation and is its end.
