181a. εἰ τὸν Σωφρονίσκου λέγοιεν. ἀλλʼ, ὦ παῖδες, λέγετέ μοι, ὅδʼ ἐστὶ Σωκράτης, περὶ οὗ ἑκάστοτε ἐμέμνησθε; ΠΑΙ. πάνυ μὲν οὖν, ὦ πάτερ, οὗτος. ΛΥ. εὖ γε νὴ τὴν Ἥραν, ὦ Σώκρατες, ὅτι ὀρθοῖς τὸν πατέρα, ἄριστον ἀνδρῶν ὄντα, καὶ ἄλλως καὶ δὴ καὶ ὅτι οἰκεῖα τά τε σὰ ἡμῖν ὑπάρξει καὶ σοὶ τὰ ἡμέτερα. ΛΑ. καὶ μήν, ὦ Λυσίμαχε, μὴ ἀφίεσό γε τἀνδρός· ὡς ἐγὼ καὶ ἄλλοθί γε αὐτὸν ἐθεασάμην οὐ μόνον τὸν πατέρα 181a. Now tell me, my boys, is this the Socrates whose name you have mentioned so often? Son. To be sure, father, it is he. Lys. On my soul, Socrates, it is good to know that you keep up your father’s name, which was a most honorable one, both on general grounds and particularly because of the intimate relation in which you and we shall equally feel ourselves to be. Lach. Indeed, Lysimachus, he is a person you must not lose hold of; for I have observed him elsewhere too keeping up not merely his father’

214d. σε Σωκράτης ὧν ἄρτι εἶπεν; ἢ οἶσθα ὅτι τοὐναντίον ἐστὶ πᾶν ἢ ὃ ἔλεγεν; οὗτος γάρ, ἐάν τινα ἐγὼ ἐπαινέσω τούτου παρόντος ἢ θεὸν ἢ ἄνθρωπον ἄλλον ἢ τοῦτον, οὐκ ἀφέξεταί μου τὼ χεῖρε. 214d. Besides, my gifted friend, you are surely not convinced by anything that Socrates has just told you? You must know the case is quite the contrary of what he was saying. It is he who, if I praise any god in his presence of any person other than himself, will not keep his hands off me.

Theo. Why, what do you mean, Socrates? Soc. When you rated sophist, statesman, and philosopher at the same value, though they are farther apart in worth than your mathematical proportion can express. Theo. By Ammon, our special divinity, that is a good hit, Socrates; evidently you haven’t forgotten your mathematics, and you are quite right in, finding fault with my bad arithmetic. I will get even with you at some other time; but now, Stranger, I turn to you. Do not grow tired of being kind to us, but go on and tell us about the statesman or the philosopher,

466e. γὰρ ποιεῖν ὧν βούλονται ὡς ἔπος εἰπεῖν, ποιεῖν μέντοι ὅτι ἂν αὐτοῖς δόξῃ βέλτιστον εἶναι. ΠΩΛ. οὐκοῦν τοῦτο ἔστιν τὸ μέγα δύνασθαι; ΣΩ. οὔχ, ὥς γέ φησιν πῶλος.

ΣΩ. οὐκοῦν ἀποδείξεις τοὺς ῥήτορας νοῦν ἔχοντας καὶ 466e. that they wish to do, practically speaking, though they do whatever they think to be best. Pol. Well, and is not that a great power to have? Soc. No, judging at least by what Polus says. Pol. I say no! Pardon me, I say yes. Soc. No, by the ————, you do not; for you said that great power is a good to him who has it. Pol. Yes, and I maintain it. Soc. Then do you regard it as a good, when a man does what he thinks to be best, without having intelligence? Is that what you call having a great power? Pol. No, I do not. Soc. Then will you prove that the orators have intelligence, and that rhetoric is an art, not a flattery, and so refute me ?
