[119c] For I am sure that my natural powers alone will give me an easy victory over them.

Socrates
Ho, ho, my good sir, what a thing to say! How unworthy of your looks and your other advantages!

Alcibiades
What is your meaning now, Socrates? What is the connection?

Socrates
I am grieved for you, and for my love.

Alcibiades
Why, pray?

Socrates
That you should expect your contest to be with the men we have here.

Alcibiades
Well, but with whom is it to be?

Socrates
Is that a worthy question to be asked by a man who considers himself high-spirited?
