[199b] what is to be dreaded and dared, as you say, do you not?

Nicias
Yes.

Socrates
And things to be dreaded and things to be dared have been admitted to be either future goods or future evils?

Nicias
Certainly.

Socrates
And the same knowledge is concerned with the same things, whether in the future or in any particular stage?

Nicias
That is so.

Socrates
Then courage is knowledge not merely of what is to be dreaded and what dared, for it comprehends goods and evils not merely in the future, but also in the present
