Source Notes: Source: Attributed to ARISTOTLE.Diogenes Laertius, Lives of Eminent Philosophers, trans. R. D. Hicks, vol. 1, book 5, section 19, p. 463 .He also credits Aristotle with saying: Teachers who educated children deserved more honour than parents who merely gave them birth; for bare life is furnished by the one, the other ensures a good life .Diogenes Laertius, a third century A.D. Greek writer, was a literary compiler rather than a philosopher. Considered the most significant secondary source of information covering the history of philosophy, his book is the only work of its kind that has come down to us substantially intact. A special feature of it is the citation of original excerpts.Michael Grant, Greek and Latin Authors, pp. 13132 .

A bit about Aristotle ...

Aristotle (384 BCE - March 7, 322 BCE) was an ancient Greek philosopher, a student of Plato and teacher of Alexander the Great. He wrote on diverse subjects, including physics, poetry, biology and zoology, logic, rhetoric, politics and government, and ethics. Along with Socrates and Plato, Aristotle was one of the most influential of ancient Greek philosophers. They transformed Presocratic Greek philosophy into the foundations of Western philosophy as we know it. Some consider Plato and Aristotle to have founded two of the most important schools of Ancient philosophy; others consider Aristotelianism as a development and concretization of Plato's insights.
