[470c]

Socrates
Well then I say, Polus, if you prefer to hear it from me, that it is better when these things are done justly, and worse when unjustly.

Polus
So hard to refute you, Socrates! Nay, a mere child could do it, could he not, and prove your words are untrue?

Socrates
Then I shall be most grateful to the child, and equally to you, if you refute me and rid me of foolery. Come, do not grow weary in well-doing towards your friend, but refute me.
