Example text

Chaque matin, chaque soir je me baigne. Quand je te vois, je pense vomissures. LE DIOGÈNE As-tu lavé les souillures de l'âme? LE SINOPÉEN Mon âme est belle. Elle chérit les dieux. et les honore. Ah ! dans tes beaux discours, ils sont absents. Tu crois prendre leur place. DIOGÈNE Les dieux, les dieux, à quoi crois-tu qu'ils pensent? À leurs plaisirs, rien d'autre, diriger tous ces mortels qui leur font des offrandes en répondant par leur vaste mépris. Les dieux, les dieux, mais ceux qui les honorent par intérêt sont des faibles, des sots les modelant à leur propre façon par convenance.

Pour tenter notre chance à ce tournoi de langage et d’idées. Nous verrons bien qui sera le plus fort et si c’est lui, je me rends à ses armes et me soumets à sa philosophie. Je le promets, tu restes mon témoin. LE SINOPÉEN Répare-toi. Procède avec ta ruse. Pour le connaître, il faut le retrouver dans son passé. Je t’en dirai l’histoire. Fille est bien trouble, il s’agit d‘une errance. Il fut disciple. Antisthène son maître lui enseigna son austère doctrine, s’émerveillant que ce jeune gandin trouvant les mots de sa propre parole plus loin que lui s’envolât dans l’Idée, écolier plus savant que le maître, plus rude aussi, plus rusé, plus tenace et maîtrisant tous les mots qui flagellent en combattant qui connaît toutes armes.

Je serai Diogène sans le rictus et sans la haine forte. J’aimerai l’homme et saurai le juger non sur la mine ou sur ses vêtements. DIOGÈNE Ton impudence est faite pour me plaire, mon bel oiseau dont les plumes s’enflamment ! J’ai tout perdu, même cette énergie que tu détiens mais j’ai gardé la haine du genre humain. Tu parais insensible à ces malheurs que leur être a produits en se voulant supérieurs aux autres. ÉLOSIPOS Ô Diogène, écoutant ta parole, je crois déjà que tu m’as adopté. Ce que tu dis, je dois le méditer, je le ferai car je garde esprit libre.
