Aristotle (Greek: Ἀριστοτέλης, Aristotélēs) (384 BC – 322 BC) was a Greek philosopher, a student of Plato and teacher of Alexander the Great. His writings cover many subjects, including physics, metaphysics, poetry, theater, music, logic, rhetoric, linguistics, politics, government, ethics, biology, and zoology. Together with Plato and Socrates (Plato’s teacher), Aristotle is one of the most important founding figures in Western philosophy. Aristotle’s writings were the first to create a comprehensive system of Western philosophy, encompassing morality and aesthetics, logic and science, politics and metaphysics.

See below for some of Aristotle’s noted Quotes (Wisdom):

“Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence”

“The energy of the mind is the essence of life.”

“We live in deeds, not years: In thoughts not breaths; In feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.”

“To Thales the primary question was not what do we know, but how do we know it.”

“Since the things we do determine the character of life, no blessed person can become unhappy. For he will never do those things which are hateful and petty.”

“The activity of happiness must occupy an entire lifetime; for one swallow does not a summer make”
