[477b] Look at it this way; in a man's pecuniary resources do you perceive any other badness than poverty?

No, only poverty.

And what in his bodily resources? You would say that badness there is weakness or disease or ugliness or the like?

I would.

And in soul too you believe there is a certain wickedness?

Of course.

And do you not call this injustice, ignorance, cowardice, and so forth?

Certainly I do.
