What then? whether do you wish to take and lead away this your son, or shall I teach him to speak?

Teach him, and chastise him: and remember that you train him properly; on the one side able for petty suits; but train his other jaw able for the more important causes.

Nay, rather, pale and wretched.

Exeunt Socrates, Strepsiades, and Phidippides.
