But I think we should not go forth from this assembly, having merely adopted resolutions in favor of the peace, without also taking counsel how we shall keep it, and not do what we are in the habit of doing—namely, getting ourselves involved again in the same disorders after a short interval of time2—and how we shall devise, not merely a postponement, but some means of permanent deliverance from our present ills.

1 Probably from the former allies with whom Athens was now at war.

2 Cf. Isoc. 5.8.
