[Plato]

ALCIBIADES II

Persons of the Dialogue :
SOCRATES, ALCIBIADES.

[138a] Socrates : Alcibiades, are you on your way to offer a prayer to the god ?



Alcibiades : I am, certainly, Socrates.

Socrates : You seem, let me say, to have a gloomy look, and to keep your eyes on the ground, as though you were pondering something.

Alcibiades : And what might one ponder, Socrates ?

Socrates : The greatest of questions, Alcibiades, [138b] as I believe. For tell me, in Heaven’s name, do you not think that the gods sometimes grant in part, but in part refuse, what we ask of them in our private and public prayers, and gratify some people, but not others ?
