‘ [29ε] καὶ ἐάν τις ὑμῶν ἀμφισβητήσῃ καὶ φῇ ἐπιμελεῖσθαι, οὐκ εὐθὺς ἀφήσω αὐτὸν οὐδ᾽ ἄπειμι, ἀλλ᾽ ἐρήσομαι αὐτὸν καὶ ἐξετάσω καὶ ἐλέγξω, καὶ ἐάν μοι μὴ δοκῇ κεκτῆσθαι ἀρετήν, ’

And if one of you should dispute and say that he cares, I will not immediately leave him alone or go away, but I will ask him and examine him and accuse him, and if he shouldn't seem to me to have acquired arete,

‘ [30α] φάναι δέ, ὀνειδιῶ ὅτι τὰ πλείστου ἄξια περὶ ἐλαχίστου ποιεῖται, τὰ δὲ φαυλότερα περὶ πλείονος.

and he brings to light, I will reproach him that he does less of the worthy things of the most importance, and more of the base things.




A very brief Platonic interlude this evening. Now to dine, and make plans for getting more things done.
