Aristotle (c. 384-322 BCE)

“The rule of soul over body is like a master’s rule, while the rule of intelligence over desire is like a statesman’s or a king’s.”

  • From Aristotle’s Politics (Bekker page 1254a), translated by T. A. Sinclair and revised by T. J. Saunders (Penguin Classics, 1962, 1981, 1992).
