[40c]

Socrates
Then the bad rejoice for the most part in the false, and the good in true pleasures.

Protarchus
That is inevitably true.

Socrates
According to our present view, then, there are false pleasures in the souls of men, imitations or caricatures of the true pleasures; and pains likewise.

Protarchus
There are.

Socrates
We saw, you remember, that he who had an opinion at all always really had an opinion, but it was sometimes not based upon realities, whether present, past, or future.

Protarchus
Certainly.
