Aristotle

Aristotle (c. 384-322 BCE)

“Virtue lies in our power, and similarly so does vice; because where it is in our powers to act, it is also in our power not to act, and where we can refuse we can also comply.”

  • From The Nicomachean Ethics (Book III, v) by Aristotle, translated by J. A. K. Thomson (Penguin Classics, 2004).
