            painting of Aristotle by Raphael (detail)


"Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees the others."

"We are what we repeatedly do."

"The energy of the mind is the essence of life."

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

"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."

— Aristotle [384-322 B.C.E.]
