Aristotle

 

Aristotle (384-322 BCE)

“Just as at the Olympic Games it is not the best-looking or the strongest men present that are crowned with wreaths, but the competetors (because  it is from them that the winners come), so it is those who act that rightly win the honours and rewards in life.”

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