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.
Aristotle

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
Aristotle

I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self.
Aristotle

In a democracy the poor will have more power than the rich, because there are more of them, and the will of the majority is supreme.
Aristotle

In poverty and other misfortunes of life, true friends are a sure refuge. The young they keep out of mischief; to the old they are a comfort and aid in their weakness, and those in the prime of life they incite to noble deeds.
Aristotle
