[242d] “I was distressed lest I be buying honor among men by sinning against the gods.” Ibycus Frag. 24, Bergk.But now I have seen my error.

Phaedrus
What do you mean?

Socrates
Phaedrus, a dreadful speech it was, a dreadful speech, the one you brought with you, and the one you made me speak.

Phaedrus
How so?

Socrates
It was foolish, and somewhat impious. What could be more dreadful than that?

Phaedrus
Nothing, if you are right about it.

Socrates
Well, do you not believe that Love is the son of Aphrodite and is a god?

Phaedrus
So it is said.

Socrates
Yes, but not by Lysias, nor by your speech
