Athenian

Clinias
Then let us by no means desist until we have secured this very quality for the laws we have stated; for it would be ridiculous for us to have wasted all this labor on an object, and then not base it on any firm foundation.

Athenian
You are right in your exhortation, and you will find me as ready as yourself to proceed.

Clinias
Very good. Then what is it you say will prove a means of salvation to our polity and its laws, and how will it do so?
