I have a quote in my commonplace book attributed to Aristotle but I cannot find the source. Googling the quote verbatim or substrings of it has not turned up neither the quote itself nor any variation thereof.

I was hoping to get some help, maybe someone else has come across the same quote and where and who actually said it.

The quote is,

Wear the mask of a good man long enough and you become that good man

  • Yeah but that's a different quote – Filip Allberg Mar 29 '17 at 9:15
  • I found a source possibly, Object thinking. It's a book, and on page 163 it has the quote attributed to Aristotle as well but no sources to look to. That's all I could find. – EvanM Mar 29 '17 at 11:22
  • That's the one! I have that book in my bookshelf, but I would have never considered going through it as it seemed to me as an unviable and unlikely candidate. Aristotle is not even in the index! Thanks @EvanM Post it as an answer and I'll accept it! – Filip Allberg Mar 29 '17 at 11:28
  • Glad I could help – EvanM Mar 29 '17 at 13:48
