[114e]

Alcibiades
No, you yourself must be the speaker.

Socrates
What? Do you not wish above all things to be persuaded?

Alcibiades
By all means, to be sure.

Socrates
And you would best be persuaded if you should say “the case is so”?

Alcibiades
I agree.

Socrates
Then answer; and if you do not hear your own self say that the just is expedient, put no trust in the words of anyone again.

Alcibiades
I will not: but I may as well answer; for I do not think I shall come to any harm.
