Aristophanes Quotes

Aristophanes QuotesMen of sense often learn from their enemies. It is from their foes, not their friends, that cities learn the lesson of building high walls and ships of war . . .

High thoughts must have high language.

Under every stone lurks a politician.

Let each man exercise the art he knows.

A man’s homeland is wherever he prospers.

Hunger knows no friend but its feeder.

A man may learn wisdom even from a foe.

By words the mind is winged.

The wise learn many things from their enemies.

Quickly, bring me a beaker of wine, so that I may wet my mind and say something clever.
