What is your Aristotle quote?

Post by JDlugosz » 2007 Nov 28, 16:07

On your main page, you have a quote by Aristotle but all the words are nonsense.  What is it?  I can't find a reference anywhere, and the individual words don't show up in multilanguage dictionaries or Google searches either.  I'm guessing it's Greek turned into Roman letters?

I recall an "explanation" back in ancient history of this site that those quotes are in the same genre as the lyrics of ZabaraKatranemia. ;)

Or it could be a home-made saying, like these:

this aristotle (?) saying means "good and big are uncorrelated qualities", the cue being xplorer2 is small but it doesn't mean it's bad

And if you still don't get it, don't worry: Just say, "It's all Greek to me!" :)

Why not use the Greek characters?
