[860a] that a passion which shares in justice, becomes, so far, beautiful.

Clinias
True.

Athenian
But if we agree that a passion though just is unseemly, then justice and beauty will be at discord, when just things are called most unseemly.

Clinias
What do you mean by that?

Athenian
It is not hard to grasp. The laws we enacted a short time ago might seem to enjoin what is absolutely contrary to our present statements.

Clinias
What statements?
