Traduction française
[4,10] whereas Diogenes cajoled no men by flattery, but told everybody the truth and, 
even though he possessed not a single drachma, succeeded in doing as he pleased, 
failed in nothing he set before himself, was the only man who lived the life he 
considered the best and happiest, and would not have accepted Alexander's 
throne or the wealth of the Medes and Persians in exchange for his own poverty.
