Athenian
And shall we say that some of these are foul, others fair?

Clinias
Necessarily.

Athenian
And shall we say that all such as are mean belong to us, if to anyone, whereas the gods have no share in any such things, great or small?

Clinias
To this, too, everyone would assent.

Athenian
Well then, shall we reckon neglect, idleness and indolence as goodness of soul? Or how say you?

Clinias
How could we?

Athenian
As the opposite, then?

Clinias
Yes.
