Aristotle
Democracy arose from men's thinking that if they are equal in any respect, they are equal absolutely.
Aristotle

The laws are, and ought to be, relative to the constitution, and not the constitution to the laws. A constitution is the organization of offices in a state, and determines what is to be the governing body, and what is the end of each community. But laws are not to be confounded with the principles of the constitution; they are the rules according to which the magistrates should administer the state, and proceed against offenders.

Aristotle
The avarice of mankind is insatiable; at one time two obols was pay enough; but now, when this sum has become customary, men always want more and more without end.
Aristotle

Aristotle
A courageous person is one who faces fearful things as he ought and as reason directs for the sake of what is noble.
