[115c]

Socrates
And is not the courage one thing, and the death another?

Alcibiades
Certainly.

Socrates
Then it is not in the same respect that rescuing one's friends is noble and evil?

Alcibiades
Apparently not.

Socrates
Then see if, inasmuch as it is noble, it is also good; for in the present case you were admitting that the rescue was noble in respect of its courage: now consider this very thing, courage, and say whether it is good or bad. Consider it in this way: which would you choose to have, good things or evil?

Alcibiades
Good.
