Aristotle

Those who assert that the mathematical sciences say nothing of the beautiful or the good are in error. For these sciences say and prove a great deal about them; if they do not expressly mention them, but prove attributes which are their results or definitions, it is not true that they tell us nothing about them. The chief forms of beauty are order and symmetry and definiteness, which the mathematical sciences demonstrate in a special degree.

Aristotle

There is no great genius without some touch of madness. Arist
Aristotle

For though we love both the truth and our friends, piety requires us to honor the truth first.

Aristotle
Of old, the demagogue was also a general, and then democracies changed into tyrannies. Most of the ancient tyrants were originally demagogues. They are not so now, but they were then; and the reason is that they were generals and not orators, for oratory had not yet come into fashion.
Aristotle

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.

Aristotle
And this lies in the nature of things: What people are potentially is revealed in actuality by what they produce.
Aristotle

We become brave by doing brave acts.

Aristotle
That which is impossible and probable is better than that which is possible and improbable.
