of anger are violent, but feeble; of their desires some have ceased, while
others are weak, so that they neither feel them nor act in accordance with them,
but only from motives of gain. Hence men of this age are regarded as
self-controlled, for their desires have slackened, and they are slaves to gain.
Aristotle in 23 Volumes, Vol. 22, translated by J. H. Freese. Aristotle. Cambridge and London. Harvard University Press; William Heinemann Ltd. 1926.
