Aristotle quotes

Aristotle quotes.  The quotes I wanted to press here are >  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.”  This is my thesis in a sentence. We become just by performing just actions, temperate by performing temperate actions, brave by performing brave actions.You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existenceIt is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. No great genius has ever existed without some touch of madness.
