Aristotle’s Wisdom

Aristotle was a Greek philosopher born in 384 BC. He lectured on a broad range of topics and shared much wisdom in his 62 year life.

Some of my favorite Aristotle quotes:

The more you know, the more you know you don’t know.

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

Through discipline comes freedom.

The best way for a student to get out of difficulty is to go through it.

Well begun is half done.

Patience is bitter, but its fruits are sweet.

To live happily is an inward power of the soul.

What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies.

Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.

No great mind has ever existed without a touch of madness.

The worst form of inequality is to try to make unequal things equal.

Those that know, do. Those that understand, teach.

Happiness depends upon ourselves.
