Athenian
Do we imagine, my good Sir, that the men of that age, who were unversed in the ways of city life—many of them noble, many ignoble,—were perfect either in virtue or in vice?

Clinias

Athenian
As time went on and our race multiplied, all things advanced—did they not?—to the condition which now exists.

Clinias
Very true.

Athenian
But, in all probability, they advanced, not all at once, but by small degrees, during an immense space of time.
