[35a]

Socrates
Of drink, or of being filled with drink?

Protarchus
Of being filled, I suppose.

Socrates
The man, then, who is empty desires, as it appears, the opposite of what he feels for, being empty, he longs to be filled.

Protarchus
That is very plain.

Socrates
Well then, is there any source from which a man who is empty at first can gain a comprehension, whether by perception or by memory, of fulness, a thing which he does not feel at the time and has never felt before?

Protarchus
It cannot be done.
