Greek Philosophers Have Their Say

All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion, desire.
All men by nature desire to know.

All virtue is summed up in dealing justly.

Wisdom begins in wonder.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is a habit.

It is not living that matters, but living rightly.

The greatest way to live with honor in this world is to be what we pretend to be.

Human behavior flows from three main sources: desire, emotion, and knowledge.

Knowledge is true opinion.

At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet.

He is a wiser man who invented beer.

I do not know whether there are gods, but there ought to be.

Blushing is the color of virtue.

It takes a wise man to discover a wise man.

The vine bears three kinds of grapes: the first of pleasure, the second of intoxication, the third of disgust.

May 21 is Greek Philosopher's Day.
