THE CYNICS

and incapable of enduring winter ; and who, because they have plenty of shade in summer and as much wine as they like to drink, never know what sunlight and natural thirst are. And so they invent injurious foods, and baths to cure them. But Diogenes experienced hunger and thirst before he ate, and regarded them as the sharpest and most effective appetizers. So he enjoyed his bread more than the rest of the world enjoy the most expensive dishes, and drank from the running stream with more pleasure than they drink Thasian wine. He said too that the temples and gymnasia in any city afforded the finest and healthiest houses, open to the air. One garment was enough for him, winter or summer. He bore the open air easily, for he had grown used to it. He wore nothing on his feet. He used to say that the feet were no more delicate than the eye or the face, which, highly sensitive as they were, bore the cold because they were always uncovered. For men were not able to go about with their eyes wrapped up like their feet. He said that the rich were like new-born babies, for they always required swaddling. He maintained that men had become effeminate, and therefore lived more miserably than animals. Animals drank water, fed on vegetables, wore no clothes all the year, never entered a house or used fire, yet lived out their natural span unless some one killed them, and were all alike strong and healthy, never needing doctor or drug. Men, on the other hand, with all their longing for life and all their devices to delay death, for the most part never reached old age, but lived full of more diseases than one can name. They collected in cities in order to escape injury by outsiders, and then proceeded to injure each other as if they had collected with that object.
When it was objected that men could not live like animals because they were unprotected and their skins were soft, without the covering of hair, which most animals have, or wings, or a stout hide, his reply was that it was their way of
life that made them soft. For men as a rule avoided the sun
