And again, a man of sense in a state of pain or enjoyment?


And which sort are more apt to feel enjoyment or pain, the wise or the foolish?

Well, that will suffice. In war have you ever seen a coward?

Of course I have.

Well now, when the enemy withdrew, which seemed to you to enjoy it more, the cowards or the brave?
