Clinias
Do you mean the way people rail at antiquity in States?

Athenian
Precisely.

Clinias
That is a theme on which you will find us no grudging listeners, but the most sympathetic possible.

Athenian
I should certainly expect it to be so.

Clinias
Only say on.

Athenian
Come now, let us listen to one another and address one another on this subject with greater care than ever. Nothing, as we shall find, is more perilous than change in respect of everything, save only what is bad,—in respect of seasons, winds, bodily diet, mental disposition, everything in short with the solitary exception, as I said just now, of the bad.
