>The Greeks after this assembled at Corinth and agreed to invade Persia with Alexander for their leader. Many of their chief statesmen and philosophers paid him visits of congratulation, and he hoped that Diogenes of Sinope, who was at that time living at Corinth, would do so. As he, however, paid no attention whatever to Alexander and remained quietly in the suburb called Kraneium, Alexander himself went to visit him. He found him lying at full length, basking in the sun. At the approach of so many people, he sat up, and looked at Alexander. Alexander greeted him, and enquired whether he could do anything for him. "Yes," answered Diogenes, "you can stand a little on one side, and not keep the sun off me."

shitposting peaked in the 4th century BC

Birth of Tragedy is actually his best work
After that read On Wagner because they tie together
Then the Gay Science for some comfy aphorisms
Then Geneology for his edgy hammering of morality
Then be done

>What? They both emphasise:
>>living with virtue
>>living in accord with nature
>>rejecting conventional desires like money, sex, reputation
>>simple life
Absolutely wrong, Diogenese lived in a bathtub not a cave, if he lived like an animal it was through organic coincidence not because he strived towards living according to nature, thats a significant difference.
Again you're failing to recognize how tremendously opposed the schools are, a Cynic would find any of these things laughable as a desirable "virtue". If they ever allign with them it is through abritrary circumstancial chance not through intent. I would go as far to say a Cynic is the direct antithesis of a Stoic.

I literally never see discussion on philosophers like Diogenes, aka philosophers that are born without a fuck to give out. and are passionately against giving a fuck. Diogenes invented Cynic Philosophy and is a much better philosopher than you can ever be

We write a line through Z to differentiate it from 2
We draw a line through 0 to differentiate it from O
We write an open 4 to differentiate it from 9
We draw 9 like a backwards P to differentiate it from g

Why is there nothing for 5 and S?

Smoking and reading don't really mix (with Pynchon being the obvious exception, Gravity's Rainbow begs to be re-read stoned off your ass), I usually prefer it as a way to unwind after a hard day of study.

My current schedule

>Wake up
>largest breakfast I can stomach
>quad shot of espresso
>morning walk and a cigarette to refresh the sleeping body
>autodidact study until I get a migraine
>pop half a dozen T3s, smoke a trio of nice big bong tokes and chug down a cup of Kava Kava brew
>go for an evening walk listening to Trap music
>get home, brew some chamomile valerian tea and take a mixture of various OTC herbal sleep supplements
>pass out at some point and regain consciousness in the morning
>rinse and repeat

I'm comfortably in a downward spiral leading to a life of empty intellectualism and homelessness AKA the only patrician lifestyle still available. Now if I could only build up the courage to jack off at the grocery store, I could start to live like a true Diogenes.
