    Arrow What do you get in meaning ?

    Hi

    Would you please explain it to me?

    "Wherever there is an end,it's for this that the previous things are done,one

    after the other." Aristotle

    Is there any similar for this in english?

    Thanks in advance

    When something finishes or has a result, the steps leading up to it were done to achieve the end. I can't think of an idiom for it, though.
