Dog Remarks, Etc. by Diogenes

A friend is one soul abiding in two bodies.

Stand a little less between me and the sun.

Dogs and philosophers do the greatest good and get the fewest rewards.

I am 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.

The sun too penetrates into privies, but is not polluted by them.

What I like to drink most is wine that belongs to others.


Abandon hope, all ye who enter here! (At least put on your socks and pants.)
