Alexander the Great

Alexander the Great once asked Diogenes, a homeless Greek philosopher who lived in a barrel, if there was something he could do for him. Diogenes replied, "yes, get out of my sun". Alexander left saying, "If I wasn't Alexander, I'd like to be Diogenes," to which some records say Diogenes replied, "If i wasn't Diogenes, I'd like to be Diogenes".
