ARISTIPPUS
 


Aristippus:
Philosophy quotes

One man, who boasted of extensive knowledge, Aristippus said: “If a man eats much, he doesn’t become healthier than a man, who is satisfied only with necessary things. The same thing is with a scholar. A scholar isn’t a man, who reads much, but a man, who reads with a utility.”

Aristippus was asked about the difference between philosophers and other people and he answered that if all laws are destroyed, only the philosophers will live as before.

Aristippus was a lover of one hetaera. People always condemned him. But he always answered that he owned her and not she possessed him. And the best destiny is not only to keep yourself from the enjoyment, but also tries to possess over your enjoyment and doesn’t subordinate him.

Once Dionysius proposed Aristippus to choose one from three hetaeras, but Aristippus took tree and said that Paris had a hard time because he took only one.

It is better to be a beggar than an ignoramus. If the first one doesn’t have money, the second one doesn’t have a human nature.
