[474b] See therefore if you will consent to be put to the proof in your turn by answering my questions. For I think, indeed, that you and I and the rest of the world believe that doing wrong is worse than suffering it, and escaping punishment worse than incurring it.

Yes, and so would you and everyone else.

Far from it neither; I nor you nor anybody else.
