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.
