[192d]

Socrates
But what of it when joined with folly? Is it not, on the contrary, hurtful and mischievous?

Laches
Yes.

Socrates
And can you say that such a thing is noble, when it is both mischievous and hurtful?

Laches
Not with any justice, Socrates.

Socrates
Then you will not admit that such an endurance is courage, seeing that it is not noble, whereas courage is a noble quality.

Laches
That is true.

Socrates
So, by your account, wise endurance will be courage.

Laches
Apparently.
