[118e]

Alcibiades
But what if the two sons of Pericles were simpletons, Socrates?

Socrates
Well, Cleinias, your brother.

Alcibiades
But why should you mention Cleinias, a madman?

Socrates
Well, if Cleinias is mad and the two sons of Pericles were simpletons, what reason are we to assign, in your case, for his allowing you to be in your present condition?

Alcibiades
I believe I am myself to blame for not attending to him.
