Quotations from
Greek philosopher Aristotle [384-322 B.C.E.]

Ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle studied at Plato's Academy in Athens for almost 30 years; he then became the tutor to the Macedonian prince who became Alexander the Great. Although many of his works are studied today, in original Greek and in translation, it is estimated that only a third of his works have survived.
