The subject of Thermopyl appears to have been a favorite with Simonides.
Quite correct, Socrates, if Simonides is to be believed, said Polemarchus interposing.
And Simonides never says that he praises him who does no evil voluntarily; the word 'voluntarily' applies to himself.
When Simonides said that the repayment of a debt was justice, he did not mean to include that case?
Philothea interrupted her, by saying, "I should much rather hear something from the pure and tender-hearted Simonides."
Prodicus, I said, Simonides is a countryman of yours, and you ought to come to his aid.
Simonides used to say that he never regretted having held his tongue, but very often had he felt sorry for having spoken.
Let us ask Prodicus, for he ought to be able to answer questions about the dialect of Simonides.
Still (contends Simonides) there are other pleasures greater than those of sense.
The dream or apparition of Simonides was more useful to himself personally.
