[41d]

Socrates
What takes place is this: in these circumstances pleasures and pains exist at the same time and the sensations of opposite pleasures and pains are present side by side simultaneously, as was made clear just now.

Protarchus
Yes, that is clear.

Socrates
And have we not also said and agreed and settled something further?

Protarchus
What?

Socrates
That both pleasure and pain admit of the more and less and are of the class of the infinite.

Protarchus
Yes, we have said that, certainly.

Socrates
Then what means is there of judging rightly of this?
