Aristotle

Aristotle: ‘Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives-choice, not chance, determines your destiny.’

A great philosopher of the classical period, Aristotle just knew about everything. Was he a godchild or has some supernatural powers?–Well, we believe in Superhumans.

He inscribed over 200 works (only 31 remain today). His field of studies includes–OKAY! We can do this!–

Physics, Biology, Zoology, Metaphysics, Logic, Ethics, Aesthetics, Poetry, Theatre–*phew*–Music, Rhetoric, Psychology, Linguistics, Economics, Politics, Meteorology, Geology, and Government!
