[198c]

Laches
Yes, entirely so, Socrates.

Socrates
So there you have our view, Nicias,—that coming evils are to be dreaded, and things not evil, or good things, that are to come are to be safely dared. Would you describe them in this way, or in some other?

Nicias
I would describe them in this way.

Socrates
And the knowledge of these things is what you term courage?

Nicias
Precisely.

Socrates
There is still a third point on which we must see if you are in agreement with us.
