    Polemarchus: That is the result. You will need to find your own array of memory places. But, he says, what if a friend in a reasonable state of mind were to lend you a sword or a knife and later, in a crazed state, should ask for the repayment of the debt? Cephalus, in retiring from the conversation in order to sacrifice to the goddess, may be said to be rendering a kind of justice to the gods.

    He points out that, because our judgment concerning friends and enemies is fallible, this credo will lead us to harm the good and help the bad. Him by his converse when he traced, He with much heartiness embraced, And soon equipp'd the bard anew, With servants, clothes, and money too The rest benevolence implored, With case depicted on a board: Which when Simonides espied, "I plainly told you all," he cried, "That all my wealth was in myself; As for your chattels and your pelf. In the margins of the text of Acts in Codex Vaticanus there are two different sets of chapter-divisions. Page 1 Page 2 Summary Protagoras takes his turn as the questioner and uses the opportunity to turn to the subject of lyric poetry.

    Polemarchus: In going to war against the one and in making alliances with the other. Yet these two books are not in the codex. Socrates takes further textual evidence from the poem to support this argument; the whole poem, he contends, should be considered as an implicit criticism of Pittacus's aphorism. But, he says, what if a friend in a reasonable state of mind were to lend you a sword or a knife and later, in a crazed state, should ask for the repayment of the debt? The spoilers came, the wealth demand, And leave them naked on the strand. How can the same poem maintain the truth of the statement that virtue is difficult to attain, while asserting the falsity of the statement that virtue is difficult to possess?

SIMONIDES : EPIGRAMS

Can you see it? Cephalus acts as spokesman for the Greek tradition. Socrates: And what is that which justice gives, and to whom? I wrote the first part of this post in the afternoon, and now more than 3 hours later I still can see clearly all the images.

In many Gospels-manuscripts, numbers appear in the margins. The choirs vied with one-another to win the highest accolades. Socrates: Yes, but do not persons often err about good and evil: many who are not good seem to be so, and conversely?

The Republic moves beyond this deadlock. Socrates states that it is the lack of knowledge of what is good: "there is only one sort of ill fare—the deprivation of knowledge" b. Think about it: It is not hard to remember who sits beside the host, where your friends sit, who is beside them and so on.
