So when Ulpian made no reply,—But I, said Leonidas, have a right to speak, since I have been silent a long time. But as Evenus the Parian says—
Many men make a point of contradicting
On every subject equally; but care not
Whether they rightly contradict or not.
[p. 579] But for such men there's an old answer fitting,
“That may be your opinion, this is mine.”
But with good arguments one may persuade
The wise with ease: for always men of sense
Do prove, the easiest pupils.
