Lucian, The Runaways, 4


nanZeus. Oh, it's the philosophers who have been misbehaving themselves?Phi. No, no, father; they have been just as badly treated as I have. Zeus. Then if it is neither the philosophers nor the common people, who is it that you complain of?Phi. There are some people who are between the two: they are not philosophers, and yet they are not like the rest of mankind. They are got up to look like philosophers; they have the dress, the walk, the expression; they call me mistress, write philosopher after their names, and declare themselves my disciples and followers: but they are evil men, made up of folly and impudence and wickedness; a disgrace to my name. It was their misconduct that drove me away.
