“A young man was recommended to Diogenes for a pupil; and his friends, thinking to give Diogenes a good impression concerning his intended disciple were very lavish in his praises. “Is it so?” answered the old philosopher. “If youth is so well accomplished to my hands, and his good qualities are already so numerous, he has no need of my tuition. Keep him yourselves.” As little are self-righteous people fit for Christ.
