εἶναι μὲν κυνικόν σε, Μενέστρατε, κἀνυπόδητον,
καὶ ῥιγοῦν οὐδεὶς ἀντιλέγει καθόλου:
ἂν δὲ παραρπάξῃς ἄρτους καὶ κλάσματ᾽ ἀναιδῶς,
κἀγὼ ῥάβδον ἔχω, καὶ σὲ λέγουσι κύνα.

— Paton edition

No one at all denies, Menestratus, that you are a cynic and bare-footed and that you are shivering. But if you shamelessly steal loaves and broken pieces on the sly, I have a stick, and they call you a dog.
