Is it you who say that one part of virtue is not like another? Is this statement yours? What answer would you give him?I must needs admit it, Socrates, he said.Well now, Protagoras, after that admission, what answer shall we give him, if he goes on to ask this question: Is not holiness something of such nature as to be just, and justice such as to be holy, or can it be unholy? Can holiness be not just, and therefore unjust, and justice unholy?
