Great Drunken Animals in History, Part 1:

January 9, 2007

Let us remember Chrysippus, the Greek Philosopher and “second father of Stoicism,” who taught that virtue, body, and soul were all intertwined; that nobility was achieved, not bequeathed; and that sympathy, reasoning, and intelligence surpassed hero worship and praise.

Who got his donkey drunk, and died in a fit of laughter watching it attempt to eat figs.

Chrysippus
