φίλος μὲν Πλάτων, φιλτάτη δ' ἀλήθεια | φίλος μὲν Πλάτων, φιλτέρα δ' ἀλήθεια

Amicus Plato, sed magis amica veritas is a Latin phrase, translating to "Plato is my friend, but truth is a better friend (literally: Plato is friend, but truth is more friend (to me than he is))." The maxim is often attributed to Aristotle, as a paraphrase of the Nicomachean Ethics 1096a11–15.
