Note: Just because these quotes are from Plato's Protagoras, that doesn't mean it was Protagoras who said them. The following quotes need to be checked:

  • Let us hold our discussion together in our own persons, making trial of the truth and of ourselves.
  • No intelligent man believes that anybody ever willingly errs or willingly does base and evil deeds; they are well aware that all who do base and evil things do them unwillingly.
  • The art of measurement, by showing us the truth would have brought our soul into the repose of abiding by the truth, and so would have saved our life.
