Aristotle- Ten of my favourite quotes

  1. 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.
  2. The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
  3. There is no great genius without some touch of madness.
  4. You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.
  5. Nature does nothing in vain.
  6. Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.
  7. Change in all things is sweet.
  8. Men create gods after their own image, not only with regard to their form but with regard to their mode of life.
  9. The soul never thinks without a picture.
  10. No one loves the man whom he fears.
