The Quote Of The Day

I came across this jewel by the Greek philosopher Artistotle:
Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
I wonder what Aristotle had to say when his pupil, Alexander (later called "The Great") "forgot" to do his homework?
