Great thoughts---Great Minds







Aristotle said so....
We make war that we may live in peace.
We are what we repeatedly do….Men acquire a particular quality by constantly acting in a particular way---you become just by performing just actions, temperate by performing temperate actions, brave by performing brave actions.
I count him braver who overcomes his desires than one who conquers his enemies, for the hardest victory is over self.
Law is mind without reason.
************************************************************************
Confucius said so...
The STRENGTH of a nation derives from the integrity of the home.
The real fault is to have fault and not to amend them.
The young man who has not wept is a savage, and the old man who will not laugh is a fool.
The superior man is distressed by the limitation of his ability; he is not distressed by the fact that men do not recognize the ability that he has.
Virtue is never left to stand alone
Things that are done, it is needless to speak about; things that are past it is needless to blame
