Aristotle

A human being is a naturally political [animal].

Aristotle
Both Self-restraint and Unrestraint are a matter of extremes as compared with the character of the mass of mankind; the restrained man shows more and the unrestrained man less steadfastness than most men are capable of.
Aristotle

Everybody loves a thing more if it has cost him trouble: for instance those who have made money love money more than those who have inherited it.

Aristotle
I will not allow the Athenians to sin twice against philosophy,
Aristotle

Consider pleasures as they depart, not as they come.

Aristotle
Cruel is the strife of brothers.
Aristotle

There is nothing unequal as the equal treatment of unequals.

Aristotle
Tools may be animate as well as inanimate; for instance, a ship's captain uses a lifeless rudder, but a living man for watch; for a servant is, from the point of view of his craft, categorized as one of its tools. So any piece of property can be regarded as a tool enabling a man to live, and his property is an assemblage of such tools; a slave is a sort of living piece of property; and like any other servant is a tool in charge of other tools.
Aristotle

The trade of the petty usurer is hated with most reason: it makes a profit from currency itself, instead of making it from the process which currency was meant to serve. Their common characteristic is obviously their sordid avarice.

Aristotle
Persuasion is achieved by the speaker's personal character when the speech is so spoken as to make us think him credible. We believe good men more fully and more readily than others: this is true generally whatever the question is, and absolutely true where exact certainty is impossible and opinions are divided.
