[209c] but of one with snub nose and protruding eyes, shall I then have an opinion of you any more than of myself and all others like me?

Theaetetus
Not at all.

Socrates
No; I fancy Theaetetus will not be the object of opinion in me until this snubnosedness of yours has stamped and deposited in my mind a memorial different from those of the other examples of snubnosedness that I have seen, and the other traits that make up your personality have done the like. Then that memorial, if I meet you again tomorrow, will awaken my memory and make me have right opinion about you.

Theaetetus
Very true.
