Wealth is evidently not the good we are seeking; for it is merely useful and for the sake of something else.

He who cannot be a good follower cannot be a good leader.

Persuasion is achieved by the speaker's personal character when the speech is so spoken as to make us think him credible.

Hence anyone who is to listen intelligently to lectures about what is noble and just and, generally, about the subjects of political science must have been brought up in good habits.

All art, all education, can be merely a supplement to nature.
