[47b] If a man is an athlete and makes that his business, does he pay attention to every man's praise and blame and opinion or to those of one man only who is a physician or a trainer?

Crito
To those of one man only.

Socrates
Then he ought to fear the blame and welcome the praise of that one man and not of the multitude.

Crito
Obviously.

Socrates
And he must act and exercise and eat and drink as the one man who is his director and who knows the business thinks best rather than as all the others think.

Crito
That is true.
