Quotes From Heraclitus: Part Four

“Big results require big ambitions” Ambition is an important aspect and characteristic to anybody with any kind of goal, ever. Sounds like I’m exaggerating there. I’m not. Without ambition, we have no inner desire to do things. Without an inner desire to do something, we never truly complete a task because we never spend time getting all the flaws worked out. If we only run … Continue reading Quotes From Heraclitus: Part Four

Quotes From Heraclitus: Part Three

“Much learning does not teach understanding.” Academics and intelligence are two commonly confused things. Of course, it makes sense. Education often increases intelligence, and an intelligent person often does well academically. The confusion comes in when people try to measure intelligence based off of academics. Or even worse: when people assume that an intelligent person will be extremely successful academically.  There’s plenty of examples of … Continue reading Quotes From Heraclitus: Part Three

“Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day.  Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.” Good character is a concept of human imagination that results in individuals striving to become smarter, stronger, faster, and kinder.

Quotes From Heraclitus

“There is nothing permanent except change.” Change is always happening.  We’re always changing because that’s what humans do. Without change, we don’t adapt, and we fall to the bottom of the food chain over time.  Oddly enough, there’s people who actively resist change. They know it can’t be stopped, but they try anyway. The reason for this is that they want to stick to what … Continue reading Quotes From Heraclitus

Quotes From Aristotle: Part Seven

“Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.” Work is inevitable. Okay okay, I might sound a bit like Thanos when I say that, but the point still stands. Work is something that you need to do in order to take care of yourself. Alternatively you’ll be homeless, hungry, probably lonely, and although it doesn’t sound bad, bored. Boredom kills.  Aristotle knew that enjoying … Continue reading Quotes From Aristotle: Part Seven

Quotes From Aristotle: Part Six

“Whosoever is delighted in solitude, is either a wild beast or a god.” I’ve noticed there seems to be a tendency for influencers to encourage people to be alone more. Admittedly, this is true sometimes. It’s good for people to learn to be okay with being alone, because sometimes we’re forced to do so. If we never learn this skill, we become codependent and unreliable … Continue reading Quotes From Aristotle: Part Six

Quotes From Aristotle: Part Four

“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” — Aristotle I think everybody can take a bit of wisdom from this quote. Educated people are educated because they open up their mind to possibilities of education. The stubborn person never learns because they never close their mouth and listen to something other than their own … Continue reading Quotes From Aristotle: Part Four

Quotes From Aristotle: Part Three

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” — Aristotle I wonder how many times we’ve discussed habits on this blog. As you should know by now, habits are everything. You can’t succeed without strong habits, and you can’t continue succeeding without a habit of that. Because of this, it’s important to stick to your habits, and if … Continue reading Quotes From Aristotle: Part Three

Quotes From Aristotle: Part Two

“A friend to all is a friend to none.” — Aristotle To those who have watched a movie called The Incredibles, this quote might seem oddly familiar.  Syndrome says something similar when he has Mr. Incredible confined with these big heavy weights on his hands and feet, which are attached to a ring around him using some kind of technology that we haven’t developed yet. … Continue reading Quotes From Aristotle: Part Two
