„Youth ages, immaturity is outgrown, ignorance can be educated, drunkenness sobered, but stupid lasts forever.“

—  Aristophanés
Fictional attribution in the movie The Emperor's Club (2002), given by Kevin Kline (as William Hundert); no published occurrences of this statement prior to the movie have been located in any of the Aristophanes Plays or Fragments.

„Demosthenes [to the Sausage-Seller]:“

—  Aristophanés
Context: Demosthenes [to the Sausage-Seller]: Mix and knead together all the state business as you do for your sausages. To win the people, always cook them some savoury that pleases them. Besides, you possess all the attributes of a demagogue; a screeching, horrible voice, a perverse, crossgrained nature and the language of the market-place. In you all is united which is needful for governing. (tr. O'Neill 1938, [http://www. perseus. tufts. edu/hopper/text. jsp? doc=Aristoph.+Kn.+214 Perseus]) Knights, line 214-219

„Chorus [speaking for Aristophanes]:“

—  Aristophanés
Context: Chorus [speaking for Aristophanes]: Yet I have not been seen frequenting the wrestling school intoxicated with success and trying to seduce young boys; but I took all my theatrical gear and returned straight home. I pained folk but little and caused them much amusement; my conscience rebuked me for nothing. Hence both grown men and youths should be on my side and I likewise invite the bald to give me their votes; for, if I triumph, everyone will say, both at table and at festivals, “Carry this to the bald man, give these cakes to the bald one, do not grudge the poet whose talent shines as bright as his own bare skull the share he deserves.” (tr. O'Neill 1938, [http://www. perseus. tufts. edu/hopper/text. jsp? doc=Aristoph.+Peace+762 Perseus]) Peace, line 762-773 (our emphasis on 764) Aristophanes was bald.

„A man may learn wisdom even from a foe.“

—  Aristophanés
Context: !--oft-quoted variant--> Epops: A man may learn wisdom even from a foe. (tr. in Goldstein-Jackson 1983, p. [http://books. google. com/books? q=isbn%3A9780389203933+%22A+man+may+learn+wisdom+even+from+a+foe%22+Aristophanes 163]) Birds, line 375-382 (our emphasis on 375 and 378-379 and 382) Compare the later: "We can learn even from our enemies", Ovid, Metamorphoses, IV, 428.

„The wise can often profit by the lessons of a foe,“

—  Aristophanés
Context: Epops: The wise can often profit by the lessons of a foe, for caution is the mother of safety. It is just such a thing as one will not learn from a friend and which an enemy compels you to know. To begin with, it's the foe and not the friend that taught cities to build high walls, to equip long vessels of war; and it's this knowledge that protects our children, our slaves and our wealth. Leader of the Chorus [leader]: Well then, I agree, let us first hear them, for that is best; one can even learn something in an enemy's school. (tr. O'Neill 1938, [http://www. perseus. tufts. edu/hopper/text. jsp? doc=Aristoph.+Birds+375 Perseus])
