ANTISTHENES
Greek philosopher and founder of Cynic school
(444 BC - c. 371 BC)

      - [Envy]

As rust corrupts iron, so envy corrupts man.
      - [Envy]

It is better to fall among crows than flatterers; for those devour the dead only, these the living.
      - [Flattery]

Man must either make provision of sense to understand, or of a halter to hang himself.
      - [Education]

Pay attention to your enemies, for they are the first to discover your mistakes.
      - [Enemies]

The most necessary learning is that which unlearns evil.
      - [Learning]

We must not contradict, but instruct him that contradicts us; for a madman is not cured by another running mad also.
      - [Teaching]

When brothers agree, no fortress is so strong as their common life.
      - [Brothers]
