mischance after another, not because he does not feel them, but because he is a

man of high and heroic temper.” (Aristotle)

The ultimate aim of human life and activity is the development of character,

according to Aristotle. The most important goal that you accomplish in the course

of your life is to become an excellent person, in every respect. Your purpose

should be to develop the kind of personality and character that earns you the

respect, esteem and affection of the important people in your world.

be known for. They discipline themselves to do the right thing in every situation.

extreme and impetuosity on the other. He taught that it should be each person’s

goal in life to reach the golden mean in each virtue, quality or attribute that he

aspires to.
