    The philosopher Diogenes was washing lentils to make soup. He was noticed by the philosopher aristippus, who had acquired a confortable living by paying court to the king. Aristippus sneered, “If you would only learn to flatter the king, you would not have to live on such poor food as lentils.” “If you had learned to live on such food as lentils,” retorted Diogenes just as disdainfully, “you would not have to flatter the king.”
