His best known passage is, "You cannot step twice into the same river, for other waters are ever flowing on to you." This appears to be a misquotation by later philosophers, his actual statement apparently having been, "Over those who step into the same river, different and again different waters flow."

He played a significant role in defining key terms such as "nature" and "person" in the aftermath of the Councils of Ephesus (431) and Chalcedon (451), ecumenical synods that respectively addressed Nestorianism (the heresy which taught that Christ had one nature only), and defined the hypostatic union (the relationship between Christ’s two natures as present in one Person) , cited: The Oxford Handbook of Aquinas read here A heretic (i.e., someone who doctrine) can rightly be compelled to return to the Church, but a Jew or the opinions of unbelievers (Summa, 2–2, q. 10, a. 7, 9) Life, the Universe, and read online Life, the Universe, and Everything: An.
