Quote: Ibn Sina (Avicenna)

there are days when I wish I could haul out Avicenna for my students...

Those who deny [Aristotle's] first principle should be flogged or burned until they admit that it is not the same thing to be burned and not burned, or whipped and not whipped.

- Ibn Sina (Avicenna)
