Quotes for
the Journey:

Aristotle



Happiness depends
upon ourselves.

   

Friends are an aid to the young, to guard them from error; to the elderly, to attend to their wants and to supplement their failing power of action; to those in the prime of life, to assist them to noble deeds.

   

The beauty of the soul shines out when people bear with composure one heavy mischance after another, not because they do not feel them, but because they are people of high and heroic temper.

   

Happiness itself is sufficient cause.  Beautiful things are right and true; so beautiful actions are those pleasing to the gods.  Wise people have an inward sense of what is beautiful, and the highest wisdom is to trust this intuition and be guided by it.  The answer to the last appeal of what is right lies within a person's own breast.  

Trust thyself.

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.

The coward calls the brave man rash, the rash man calls him a coward.
    
A state is not a mere society, having a common place, established for the prevention of mutual crime and for the sake of exchange. . .  Political society exists for the sake of noble actions, and not of mere companionship.
   
The ideal person bears the accidents of life with dignity and grace, making the best of circumstances.
   
Without friends no one would choose to live, though they had all other goods.
  
Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.
  
If liberty and equality, as is thought by some are chiefly to be found in democracy, they will be best attained when all persons alike share in the government to the utmost.
  

   
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
   
It is the nature of desire not to be satisfied, and most people live only for the gratification of it.
  
Honors and rewards fall to those who show their good qualities in action.
    
It is easy to fly into a passion. . . but it is not easy to be angry with the right person, in the right way, and at the right time.
   
All who have meditated on the art of governing mankind have been convinced that the fate of empires depends on the education of youth.
      
I have gained this by philosophy:  that I do without being commanded what others do only from fear of the law.
   

   
Dignity consists not in possessing honors, but in the consciousness that we deserve them.

In all things of nature  there is something of the marvelous.
  
Nature does nothing uselessly.
   
Quality is not an act.  It is a habit.
   
We become just by performing just actions, temperate by performing temperate actions, brave by performing brave actions.
  
With regard to excellence, it is not enough to know, but we must try to have and use it.
  
Well begun is half done.
   
To be conscious that we are perceiving or thinking is to be conscious of our own existence.
