[31d]

Socrates
You are quite right. Now please pay very close attention.

Protarchus
I will. Say on.

Socrates
I say, then, that when, in us living beings, harmony is broken up, a disruption of nature and a generation of pain also take place at the same moment.

Protarchus
What you say is very likely.

Socrates
But if harmony is recomposed and returns to its own nature, then I say that pleasure is generated, if I may speak in the fewest and briefest words about matters of the highest import.
