There are some among you, Athenians, who are very clever at pleading the rights of others against you, and I would just give them this piece of adviceā€”to find something to say for your rights against others, so that they themselves may set the example of doing what is proper; since it is absurd for a man to lecture you about rights when he is not doing what is right himself, and it is not right that a citizen should have given his attention to all the arguments against you and to none in your favour.
