Principles remain the same, measurements change.

Art arises when from many notions gained by experience one universal judgement about similar objects is produced.

The nature of a state is to be a plurality made up of differing individuals and this is why the principle of reciprocity is the salvation of states.

The administration of justice, which is the determination of what is just, is the principle of order in political societies.

The power of speech is to set forth the expedient and the inexpedient and therefore also the just and the unjust.

That which can see by exercise of intellect is by nature ruler and that which with its body can give effect to such foresight is subject.

Man is by nature a political animal.

Whenever we have knowledge and understand what any thing is we have also come to learn its contrary.
