Crates of Thebes | Diogenes Laertius, Book 6 §15

Antisthenes gave the impulse to the indifference of Diogenes, the continence of Crates, and the hardihood of Zeno, himself laying the foundations of their state. Xenophon calls him the most agreeable of men in conversation and the most temperate in everything else.
Lives of the Eminent Philosophers (1925) by Diogenes Laërtius, translated by Robert Drew Hicks
