Aristotle

 

Aristotle

Liars when they speak the truth are not believed.

 I have gained this by philosophy; that I do without being commanded what others do only from fear of the law.

 Education is the best provision for old age.
--Lives of Eminent Philosophers

Man is by nature a political animal.
--Politics

Poetry is something more philosophic and of graver import than history, since its statements are of the nature of universals, whereas those of history are singulars.
--Poetics
