I was unable to find the quote you used in "The Complete Works of Aristotle, http://recursosdefilosofia.com/%5BJonathan_Barnes_%28editor%29%5D_The_Complete_Works_of_A%28BookFi.org%29.pdf

I belong to a Facebook group, "Verify Before You Post" that helps with attribution research before people post quotes.  Can you share your source with me?
