15 Quotes by Aristotle

Quotes by AristotleDo you have your own personal philosophy dear reader? Do you have a sense of what’s important to you and what isn’t? Do you have a set of values by which you live your life? Perhaps this is something on which you continue to reflect?

That’s fine. However if that is the case, then listening to the words of the great philosophers will help you I believe.

There are many great philosophers of course but one man’s words worthy of your time would be those of Aristotle.

Aristotle was an ancient Greek philosopher and scientist believed to have been born around 384 BC.

I think that the wisdom of the ancients offers us much to develop our own personal philosophy and all those quotes attributed to Aristotle provide much on which we can contemplate and reflect on in relation to our own lives.

Here are 15 Quotes by Aristotle to help you reflect and further develop your own philosophy.

Quotes by Aristotle:

  1. Happiness depends upon ourselves. ~Aristotle
  2. Friendship is essentially a partnership. ~Aristotle
  3. Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work. ~Aristotle
  4. Quality is not an act, it’s a habit. ~Aristotle

15 Quotes by Socrates

When you think about it, we can’t be sure that Socrates actually existed because he was apparently born around 399 BC. That’s a long time before real records began.

However Socrates is regarded as a classical Greek philosopher and he was considered to be the first moral philosopher. In fact he’s been credited as being one of the founders of Western philosophy.

History suggests that he didn’t write anything during his own lifetime and his philosophy therefore is known primarily through the written accounts of other classical scholars.

So it really is hard to know whether any of the quotes credited to him were actually spoken by him.

Nevertheless the philosophy credited to him is worthy of our consideration and further reflection. So here are 15 Quotes by Socrates that will make you think I am sure.

Quotes by Socrates:

  1. Be as you wish to seem. ~Socrates
  2. Wisdom begins in wonder. ~Socrates
  3. It is not living that matters but living rightly. ~Socrates
  4. The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing. ~Socrates
  5. From the deepest desires often become the deadliest hate. ~Socrates
  6. Marry, by all means. If you get a good wife, you’ll be happy. If you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher. ~Socrates
  7. Beware the barrenness of a busy life. ~Socrates
  8. Worthless people live only to eat and drink. People of worth eat and drink only to live. ~Socrates
  9. Be slow to fall into friendship; but when thou art in, continue firm and constant. ~Socrates
  10. True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves and the world around us. ~Socrates
  11. The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavour to be what you desire to appear. ~Socrates
  12. I was really too honest a man to be a politician and live. ~Socrates
  13. If all misfortunes were laid in one common heap whence everyone must take an equal portion, most people would be contented to take their own and depart. ~Socrates
  14. Once made equal to man, woman becomes his superior. ~Socrates
  15. Death may be the greatest of all human blessings. ~Socrates

Polite request:

If you enjoyed these quotes by Socrates then please share them with your friends on social media because when you share, everyone wins.
