Jeremiah Burroughs, The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment (Edinburgh: Banner of Truth Trust, 2002), 128:

There was a notable saying of a philosopher who lived on mean fare: as he was eating herbs and roots, someone said to him, “If you would but please Dionysius, you need not eat herbs and roots’; but he answered him thus, ‘If you would but be content with such mean fare, you need not flatter Dionysius.’
