πᾶσα τέχνη καὶ πᾶσα μέθοδος, ὁμοίως δὲ πρᾶξίς τε καὶ προαίρεσις, ἀγαθοῦ τινὸς ἐφίεσθαι δοκεῖ· διὸ καλῶς ἀπεφήναντο τἀγαθόν, οὗ πάντ’ ἐφίεται.

Every art and every investigation, and similarly every undertaking and course of action, seems to aim at some good. Therefore it has well been propounded that The Good is that thing at which all things aim.
