And it is undeniable that all five of us agreed that the gods are good, yea, exceeding good.

Most certainly.

Being, then, such as we agree, is it not impossible to allow that they do anything at all in a lazy and indolent way? For certainly amongst us mortals idleness is the child of cowardice, and laziness of idleness and indolence.

Very true.

You are very right.
