Reader comments about this quote:
This quote is not from Aristotle. It's from Will Durant paraphrasing Aristotle. It's a fine quote, but it's not the sort of thing Aristotle would say - it's poetic; it's not strictly logical. Suppose we repeatedly do courageous actions. Does that make us "courageous actions"? No, it makes us courageous. That may sound like a nitpicky distinction, but when it comes to nitpicky distinctions, I learned from the best: Aristotle.
