[190a] affirming and denying. When it has arrived at a decision, whether slowly or with a sudden bound, and is at last agreed, and is not in doubt, we call that its opinion; and so I define forming opinion as talking and opinion as talk which has been held, not with someone else, nor yet aloud, but in silence with oneself. How do you define it?

Theaetetus
In the same way.

Socrates
Then whenever a man has an opinion that one thing is another, he says to himself, we believe, that the one thing is the other.
