"Modesty is not a virtue."
- Aristotle

Greeks have "arete" which refers to the size of their manhood.  Socrates leads to Plato, Plato leads to Aristotle, Aristotle leads to Alexander … a demi-god.  Alexander didn't have a cell phone, but I do.  So I am at least as much a demi-god as Alexander.

"If I were not Alexander the Great I would wish to be Diogenes." - Alexander the Great


I'm not Alexander the Great, so I'm free to live more like Diogenes. He's one of my role models.

Aren't we all special because of who we are?!
