[496e]

Callicles
Yes.

Socrates
But drinking is a satisfaction of the want, and a pleasure?

Callicles
Yes.

Socrates
So in the act of drinking, you say, one has enjoyment?

Callicles
Quite so.

Socrates
When one is thirsty?

Callicles
I agree.

Socrates
That is, in pain?

Callicles
Yes.

Socrates
Then do you perceive the conclusion,—that you say one enjoys oneself, though in pain at the same moment, when you say one drinks when one is thirsty? Or does this not occur at once, at the same place and time—in either soul or body, as you please? For I fancy it makes no difference. Is this so or not?

Callicles
It is.

Socrates
But further, you say it is impossible to be badly off, or to fare ill, at the same time as one is faring well.

Callicles
Yes, I do.
