[62e] we let all kinds of knowledge in together before pleasure.

Protarchus
Very true.

Socrates
So now it is time for us to consider about pleasures also, whether these, too, shall be all let loose together, or we shall let only the true ones loose at first.

Protarchus
It is much safer to let loose the true first.

Socrates
We will let them loose, then. But what next? If there are any necessary pleasures, as there were kinds of knowledge, must we not mix them with the true?

Protarchus
Of course; the necessary pleasures must certainly be added.
