“B: You certainly don’t seem to care much if people laugh at you, Diogenes. Only yesterday I saw you begging for money from a statue! Would you care to explain that to me? I might have even laughed at you myself.
D: Begging from statues gets me used to being refused, young brother. Only then do I feel ready to try my luck with people.”
