[12b] “thou wilt not name; for where fear is, there also is reverence.” Stasinus, author of the Cypria (Fragm. 20, ed. Kinkel) Now I disagree with the poet. Shall I tell you how?

By all means.

It does not seem to me true that where fear is, there also is reverence; for many who fear diseases and poverty and other such things seem to me to fear, but not to reverence at all these things which they fear. Don't you think so, too?


But I think that where reverence is, there also is fear; for does not everyone who has a feeling of reverence and shame about any act
