Quotes by Aristotle

Today, in my World Literature class, I reported about Aristotle. It includes quotes by him. I really liked some. It’s the type of quotes you can use as you Facebook status! xD

“Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.”

“All men by nature desire knowledge.”

“All paid jobs absorb and degrade the mind.”

“Anybody can become angry–that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way–that is not within everybody’s power and is not easy.”

“For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.”

“Happiness depends upon ourselves.”

“I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who overcomes his enemies.”

“Poverty is the parent of revolution and crime.”

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”

“Without friends no one would choose to live, though he had all other goods.”
