Quotations from Aristotle:

 What is common to the greatest number gets the least amount of care. Men pay most attention to what is their own; they care less for what is common; or at any rate they care for it only to the extent to which each is individually concerned. Even when there is no other cause for inattention, men are more prone to neglect their duty when they think that another is attending to it.

Aristotle, (384 BC - 322 BC) Greek Philosopher
Aristotle, Politics (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1946), 1261b. 



 I count him braver who conquers his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is the victory over self.

Aristotle, (384 BC - 322 BC) Greek Philosopher



 Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit

Aristotle, (384 BC - 322 BC) Greek Philosopher



 It is easy to perform a good action, but not easy to acquire a settled habit of performing such actions.

Aristotle, (384 BC - 322 BC) Greek Philosopher



 Whereas young people become accomplished in geometry and mathematics, and wise within these limits, prudent young people do not seem to be found.

The reason is that prudence is concerned with particulars as well as universals, and particulars become known from experience, but a young person lacks experience, since some length of time is needed to produce it.

Aristotle, (384 BC - 322 BC) Greek Philosopher
Nicomachean Ethics
