and the cold. The fact that their bodies were unprotected need be no inconvenience. He pointed to frogs and many other animals much softer and more unprotected than man, some of which could not only endure the open air but could live in the coldest water in winter. He pointed too to the human eye and face, which need no protection. In general, he said, there are nowhere any living things which cannot live on their own resources. Otherwise how would the earliest men have survived, who had no fire or houses or clothes or any food except that of nature ? But all the ingenuity and invention and devices of later ages had not profited men much. For they had used their wisdom to procure not justice or goodness, but pleasure, and in their continual pursuit of pleasure from every source they came to live with less pleasure and more labour, and while fancying that they were providing security for themselves, as a result of all their care and forethought they died miserable deaths.

Some Sayings
WHEN contradicted, stop your opponent by instructing, not by contradicting him : one does not cure a madman by going mad in turn. (A.)
Asked what he had got from philosophy Antisthenes replied,
The power of living with myself.
One must acquire either reason or a rope. (A.)
It is a royal privilege to do good and be abused.
The study of words is the beginning of education. (A.)
Asked how a man can become master of himself, Diogenes replied : By applying first to himself the criticisms which he makes on others.
God is like nothing, so a statue tells us nothing of Him. God possesses everything : the wise are His friends : friends
