On Healing Oneself

Pseudo-Diogenes, Epistles 49 (tr. Benjamin Fiore) = Abraham J. Malherbe, The Cynic Epistles: A Study Edition (Missoula: Scholars Press, 1977), pp. 180-181:
But the Athenians, when they philosophize your way, resemble those who propose to cure others of what they haven't been able to cure themselves.

οἱ Ἀθηναῖοι δὲ καθ᾽ ὑμᾶς φιλοσοφήσαντες ἐοίκασι τοῖς ἐπαγγελλομένοις ἄλλους ἰατρεύειν, ἃ μὴ αὑτοὺς ἰᾶσθαι δεδύνηται.
