Aristotle: Those who educate children well
Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well.
Aristotle (Stageira, 384 BC - Chalkis, 322 BC) was a Greek philosopher and polymath, a student of Plato and teacher of Alexander the Great. His writings cover many subjects, including physics, metaphysics, poetry, theater, music, logic, rhetoric, linguistics, politics, government, ethics, biology, and zoology. Together with Plato and Socrates (Plato's teacher), Aristotle is one of the most important founding figures in Western philosophy. The writings of Aristotle were the first to create a comprehensive system of Western philosophy, encompassing ethics, aesthetics, logic, science, politics, and metaphysics.
