Aristotle Quote: We Live in Deeds

“We live in deeds, not years;

In thoughts, not breaths;

in feelings, not in figures on a dial.

We should count time by heart throbs.

He most lives who thinks most,

feels the noblest, acts the best.” – Aristotle

  1. I have seen this quoted to Philip James Bailey instead. Can you tell me where it originated in Aristotle’s writings?
