Example Sentence (Quote)

"... καὶ ἡ εἰσφορὰ τῶν τελῶν..." - Aristotle

Example Sentence (Quote)

".... In a word, acts of any kind produce habits or characters of the same kind. Hence we ought to make sure that our acts are of a certain kind; for the resulting character varies as they vary. It makes no small difference, therefore, whether a man be trained in his youth up in this way or that, but a great difference, or rather all the difference." - Aristotle

Example Sentence (Quote)

".. .suppose α without weight, but β possessing weight; and let α pass over space γδ, but β in the same time pass over a space γε ,"”for that which has weight will be carried through the larger space. If now the heavy body be divided in the proportion that space γε bears to γδ, ... and if the whole is carried through the whole space γε, then it must be that a part in the same time would be carried through γδ..." - Aristotle

Example Sentence (Quote)

" [A]ll things as subsist from nature appear to contain in themselves a principle of motion and permanency; some according to place, others according to increase and diminuation; and others according to change in quality." - Aristotle

Example Sentence (Quote)

" [B]ecause that which is finite is always bounded with reference to something... it is necessary that there should be no end... [N]umber also appears to be infinite, and mathematical magnitudes, and that which is beyond the heavens. And since that which is beyond is infinite, body also appears to be infinite, and it would seem that there are infinite worlds; for why is there rather void here than there? .. .If also there is a vacuum, and an infinite place, it is necessary that there should be an infinite body: for in things which have a perpetual subsistence, capacity differs nothing from being. The speculation of the infinite is, however, attended with doubt: for many impossibilities happen both to those who do not admit that it has a subsistence, and to those who do. .. .It is .. .especially the province of a natural philosopher to consider if there be a sensible infinite magnitude." - Aristotle
