Aristotle – State exists for the sake of good life

Share this quote:
AristotleA state exists for the sake of a good life, and not for the sake of a life only: if life only were the object, slaves and brute animals might form a state, but they cannot, for they have no share in happiness or in a life of free choice.

Aristotle   (384 BC-322 BC)
Politics, Bk. 3
