Aristotle (c. 384-322 BCE)

“One swallow does not make a summer; neither does one day. Similarly, neither can one day, or a brief space of time, make a man blessed and happy.”

  • From The Nicomachean Ethics (Bekker number 1098a) by Aristotle, translated by J. A. K. Thomson (Penguin Classics, 2004).
