Aristotle (384-322 BCE)

“One can forgive a man for not standing by his opinions in the face of powerful desires, but one cannot forgive wickedness or any other culpable attitude.”

  • From The Nicomachean Ethics (Book VII, section 2, Bekker page 1146a) by Aristotle, translated by J. A. K. Thomson (Penguin Classics, 2004).
