THE CYNICS

satisfied to live simply, using such food as will support the body, despising wealth, reputation, and high birth. Diogenes said that it is the mark of God to need nothing, and of those who are like God to need little.
Goodness is a matter of acts : it does not need many words or much knowledge. (A.)
Madness rather than pleasure. (D.)
We must seek the pleasures that follow toil, not those which precede it. (A.)

There is a double discipline-of the body and the soul.... Either is incomplete without the other.... There can be no kind of success in life without discipline, and with it everything can be overcome. The very contempt for pleasure, if we practise it, becomes delightful, and just as those who have been accustomed to an indulgent way of life are unhappy when they lose it, so those who have disciplined themselves to a contrary disposition find a pleasure in despising pleasure. (D.)
We have a fivefold gospel here-manliness, independence, self-discipline, simplicity, work. Fitly the Cynic's patron saint was Heracles-the strong man who had travelled over the world freeing mankind from the monsters that plagued them. The Cynic's stick and cloak represented the club and lion-skin of Hercnles : he shared his hero's homeless, wandering life, and learnt from his famous Twelve Labours what a man should be. The Cynic is the first ascetic of the West. But he is something more than an ascetic or even a moralist.
