Sosicrates in his Successions of Philosophers says that, when Leon the tyrant of Philus asked him who he was, he said, “a philosopher.” He compared life to the Great Games, where some went to compete for the prize, and others went with wares to sell, but the best as spectators; for similarly, in life some grow up with a servile nature, others are greedy for fame and gain, but the philosopher seeks for truth.
