Aristotle has said knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.
Having wisdom will open so many things for you in life.
Aristotle on Know Thyself
“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” ― Aristotle
Following Plato’s death, Aristotle shifted his philosophy from Platonism to empiricism. Corresponding with and stimulated by this philosophical shift was an increasing scalar focus on examining the microcosmic self rather than exclusive contemplation of the higher world of forms and ideals. He believed all particular things to be instantiated in universals and that the part and whole, which he titled form and matter, were in fact one and the same.
“To attain any assured knowledge about the soul is one of the most difficult things in the world.” ― Aristotle
“The more you know, the more you know you don’t know.” ― Aristotle
Aristotle believed the title of philosopher belonged to one who had mastered the optimum activity of reason, and from this excellence consequently followed the state of eudaimonia, meaning well-being and equilibrium.
