DIOGENES 412(?)-323 BC: Diogenes was a Greek Cynic philosopher
known for his eccentric behavior. Nicknamed "Dog" by his contemporaries,
he is best known as the man who carried a lantern around Athens at mid-day
searching for an honest man. He believed only in practical good as the
means to the truth, that freedom could be achieved by reducing needs to
the barest minimum and that happiness came from returning to nature.
