Stranica lxxi - For as we have many members In one body, and all members have not the same office: So we, being many, are one body in Christ and every one members one of another.
Stranica 3 - A social instinct is implanted in all men by nature, and yet he who first founded the state was the greatest of benefactors. For man, when perfected, is the best of animals, but, when separated from law and justice, he is the worst of all...
Stranica cxlvi - In the first place ( 1 ) there must be a union of those who cannot exist without each other; for example, of male and female, that the race may continue; and this is a union which is formed, not of deliberate purpose, but because, in common with other animals and with plants, mankind have a natural desire to leave behind them an image of themselves.

Stranica 126 - And democracies are safer and more permanent than oligarchies, because they have a middle class which is more numerous and has a greater share in the government ; for when there is no middle class, and the poor greatly exceed in number, troubles arise, and the state soon comes to an end.
Stranica 245 - And in another place Odysseus says there is no better way of passing life than when 'Men's hearts are merry and the banqueters in the hall, sitting in order, hear the voice of the minstrel.
