Writer’s Quote Wednesday, 5/20/2015.

Standard

Well in keeping with my Greek old guy theme, I decided to quote another philosopher. This is another one that needs no introduction, he was the one that started pushing wholesale for names on every little thing and action. Something I will never forgive him for, but he was a smart guy nonetheless:

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle.

If you want to get into a debate with me, ask me why naming everything in existence is bad. Later!

  1. When you name a thing, you pigeon-hole what it is. For example, when you think tree, there are certain associations involved with the word. Associations that aren’t always true… after all, what is a tree really?

    When we define things, some essence of what we define may be lessened or left out. Aristotle did that all the time, his entire life, and never caught on. So for all his smarts, I’m not a fan.
