ἀλλά μοι κτλ. The recapitulation is intended to emphasize once more the principle regulating Plato's sequence of subjects (528 A note and App. II).

σπεύδων -- βραδύνω: a proverbial saying, like our ‘more haste, less speed’: cf. (with Stallbaum) Pol. 264 B. If we σπεύδομεν ταχέως, we are apt σπεύδοντες βραδύνειν; hence the proverb σπεῦδε βραδέως ‘Eile mit Weile.’ See Jebb on Soph. Ant. 231.

ὅτι τῇ ζητήσει κτλ.: not “quia ita est comparata, ut de ea quaerere ridiculum sit” (Stallbaum), but ‘quia ridicule tractatur’: cf. (with Schneider) 529 E.
