Tiresias: The Ancient Mediterranean Religions Source Database

Plato, Alcibiades Ii, 150c

nanwhile supposing it to be good? Alc. I do. Soc. You see, then, how unsafe it is for you to approach the god with your prayers, for it may chance that when he hears your irreverent speech he will reject your sacrifice altogether, and you may perhaps be accorded some other bad thing as well. In my opinion, therefore, it is best to hold your peace: for I expect you will not consent to use the Spartan’s prayer, you have such a romantic spirit—to give it the fairest of folly’s names.
