Fun With Aristotle

Some of my favorite quotes from Aristotle:

Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber.

All who have meditated on the art of governing mankind have been convinced that the fate of empires depends on the education of youth.

We make war that we might live in peace.

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

And yet the true creator is necessity, which is the mother of invention.

The quality of life is determined by its activities.

Misfortune shows those who are not really friends.

Hope is a waking dream.

The gods, too, are fond of a joke.
