Top 5 quotes from Aristotle
"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."
"Humor is the only test of gravity, and gravity of humor; for a subject which will not bear raillery is suspicious, and a jest which will not bear serious examination is false wit."
"A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side."
"Anybody can become angry - that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way - that is not within everybody's power and is not easy."
"No great genius has ever existed without some touch of madness."

"A man doesn't know what he knows until he knows what he doesn't know."
"Learning has been [a] great loser by being shut up in colleges and cells and secluded from the world and good company."
"Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught."
"Beware of the man who works hard to learn something, learns it, and finds himself no wiser than before. He is full of murderous resentment of people who are ignorant without having come by their ignorance the hard way."
