    Fragmenta Cynicae Philosophiae Characters ó 107 Fragmenta Cynicae PhilosophiaeFirst of all Diogenes What a character uick and witty but excuse me when I see that his megalomaniacal reasoning is nothing than Sophistry Diogenes' sayings often contradict each other and are often expressed in a way that simply ensures he has the last word and nothing His hypocrisy is exposed by an anecdote in the book itself while Diogenes' clamorous cry of I'm trampling on Plato's Vanity is rebuked by the reply By a vanity of your ownAfter the Death of Diogene

    Fragmenta Cynicae Philosophiae Characters ó 107 Fragmenta Cynicae PhilosophiaeHeard about him thought he was an insane loser read him and realized he is extremely wise his wit was on par with any of the great philosophers and he could have been as wealthy as Plato but he chose to be homeless to prove a point which makes him even incredible in my eyes The point in my opinion is as long as you have your virtue wit and your self confidence you can endure any difficulty if Diogenes can live with pride in the worst situations you really have nothing to complain about and should likewise practice hardening yourself Not necessarily like him of course because he was fucki

    Fragmenta Cynicae Philosophiae Characters ó 107 Fragmenta Cynicae PhilosophiaeThe majority of this wasn't actually about Diogenes Anecdotes by him and others were repeated up to four five times in a row which seemed useless and was annoying Certain parts were entertaining and it was informative but I think it could have been written in a much better way
