For it seems to me that Thrasymachus yielded too soon to the music of your voice, just as a snake is charmed;' but, for my part, the explanation thus far given of the nature of justice and injustice is unsatisfying. And now, making no account of the rewards and all the advantages derived from them, I desire to learn what they are, each of them, in themselves, and what power they have when they are present in the soul. With your approval then I will pursue this course: I will revive again the argument of Thrasymachus, and first I will state what people generally believe to be the nature and origin of justice; and I will show in the second place that all who practise it do so unwillingly because it is a necessity, not because it is a good thing; and in the third place I will affirm that they act reasonably in what they do, for, from their point of view, the life of the unjust man is far better than that of the just. Though men say that, Socrates, I myself do not share their opinion. Yet I am embarrassed when I have their words dinned
