Diogenes the Cynic
Fourth Century BC
Diogenes the Cynic believed that personal happiness is satisfied by meeting one's natural needs and that what is natural cannot be shameful or indecent. He was determined to follow his own dictates, not adhering to the conventions of society. He lived a life of extreme simplicity, inured to want, and without shame.
