Aristotle was Alexander the Great’s teacher, the former made such an impression on the latter, that Alexander gave him a peach tree and from this single one has all the peach trees in Thessaloniki been cultivated. It’s amazing the facts you one finds out from watching a cookery cum travel programme on Greece. Rick Stein’s Long Weekend programme gave me two interesting quotes and since I know you are all fond quotes I am sharing.
“I am indebted to my father for living and to my teacher for living well.” – Alexander the Great.
“The roots of education are bitter and the fruits are sweet.” -Aristotle.
