In this dialogue, Alexander the Great, apologizes to the great Cynic Diogenes when each fiery remark enables numerous replies.
Alexander: If I could be you, I would give up me. But I am trying to civilize the barbarian hoard into the Grecian way.
Diogenes: Being free of my ego is better than money, fame or power. And you will never experience it.
A: I am sorry you feel this way. You teach me to be better with less in many ways. You accomplish more with less by using your mind in difficult good ways.
D: Exercise the habits of freedom and you will be at peace.
