A POPULAR PREACHER : MAXIMUS 'I'YRIUS

That is why no Meletus or Aristophanes or Anytus or Lycon I ever attacked Diogenes.
Must not the life of Diogenes stand first-chosen by himself, given by Apollo, applauded by Zeus, admired by the wise ? And how can we define adversity better than as the leading of a life not of our choosing ?
Ask the married man why he marries: ` For children ' is his reply. Ask a man with children why he brought them into the world : he wants to leave descendants. So you will find that the farmer's desire is for crops, the merchant's for good trade, the politician's for honour. Most of these desires are abortive and end in their opposite, and success is the work of chance rather than of judgement or skill. Each of the men who make these choices leads a life of adversity, and endures unhappiness which was involuntary and did not arise from ignorance of eligible good. Which of them can be called free ? The demagogue is the servant of many tyrants ; the orator, of harsh judges ; the despot, of intemperate pleasures ; the general, of obscure fortune ; the sailor, of uncertain skill ; the philosopher -which philosopher? I admire Socrates, but I hear him saying, ` I obey the law, and I will go voluntarily to prison, and voluntarily take the poison.' Ah, Socrates ! Was it voluntary ? Or are you taking up an impressive attitude in the face of involuntary misfortune ?` I obey the law ?' If it was God's law, I applaud the lawgiver ; but if it was Solon's, how was Solon better than Socrates ? Let Plato too answer for philosophy, and say if nothing troubled his creed-for instance, the exile of Dion, the threats of Dionysius and those Ionian and Sicilian seas over which he sailed up and down. Passing to Xenophon, we find his life too full of wandering and doubtful fortunes and forced campaigns and involuntary leadership and a colourable exile. So I say that these crises were avoided by
