Hi, I'm new and helping my daughter with her projects.

I have a few quotes and wonder if you can just help with their meanings. My daughter is 8 and so a simple reply would help.

1) One swallow does not make a summer

2) Education is the best provision for the journey to old age

3) We make war that we may live in peace

Thank you. :D

Would like answers today if poss as we need to hand in the work tomorrow.

1) One swallow does not make a summer, neither does one fine day; similarly one day or brief time of happiness does not make a person entirely happy.~Aristotle
~One moment of happiness does not make a life or a person happy forever

2) Quote by Aristotle
~Being well educated is never lost even in old age

3) Also by Aristotle in Nichomachean Ethics
~Sometimes one has to make war to live in peace such as killing terrorists that threaten us.

I'm sure there are other explanations out there.
