[39e] but not to the future?

Protarchus
To the future especially.

Socrates
Do you say “to the future especially” because they are all hopes relating to the future and we are always filled with hopes all our lives?

Protarchus
Precisely.

Socrates

Protarchus

Socrates

Protarchus

Socrates
And an unjust and thoroughly bad man
