BOOK II

for the first of these people who finds the opportunity is the first to do wrong up to the limit of his ability. And all this comes from nothing else than that which was the beginning of our whole argument with you. Glaucon here and I, Socrates, were moved to say to you, my excellent friend, of all of you who profess to show forth the praises of justice, beginning with the heroes of antiquity, of whom traditions are left behind, and ending with the men of the present time, no one has ever blamed injustice or praised justice, but merely the reputation, honors and rewards that are obtained from them ; but each of the two in its own essence, as with its own peculiar power it takes up its abode in the soul of its possessor, unobserved by gods and men, no one either in poetry or prose has adequately represented, showing that injustice is the greatest of evils which the soul receives into itself, and justice is the greatest good. For if you all had spoken in this strain from the beginning and had persuaded us from childhood, we should not have been watching to keep one another from wrong-doing, but each one would have been his own guardian, fearing lest by committing injustice he should become the partner of the greatest evil. This, Socrates, and perhaps still more than this, Thrasymachus and no doubt many another would say concerning justice and injustice, grossly perverting, in my opinion, the real nature of both. But I, for I wish to be frank with you, have done my best endeavor in speaking, because of my eagerness to hear from you the opposite side. Therefore do not confine yourself to showing us that justice
