PHILOSOPHY

-they asked him: "where You from old man? he answered:"i am a citizen of the world, i am Kosmopolitês (Cosmopolitan)... Diogene of Sinope

"fatti non foste a viver come bruti, ma per seguir virtude e conoscenza"... Dante Alighieri canto XXVI

"I am Diogenes the Cynic, called a dog because I fawn on those who give me anything, I yelp at those who refuse, and I set my teeth in rascals."

"Man is the most intelligent of the animals -- and the most silly."

"It is better to have one friend of great value than many friends who were good for nothing."

"Diogenes asked Alexander the Great what his plans were. Alexander answered that he planned to conquer and subjugate Greece. Then what? Diogenes asked. Alexander said that he planned to conquer and subjugate Asia Minor. And then? Alexander said that he planned to conquer and subjugate the world. Diogenes, who was not easily dissuaded from a line of inquiry, posed the question again: What next? Alexander the Great told Diogenes that after all that conquering and subjugating, he planned to relax and enjoy himself. Diogenes responded: Why not save yourself a lot of trouble by relaxing and enjoying yourself now?"
