Persuasiveness of Truths and Falsehoods
But if, old man, there are falsehoods amongst men that are
persuasive, you should recognize the opposite—
that many truths turn out to be unpersuasive to them.
ἀλλ᾿ εἴπερ ἐστὶν ἐν βροτοῖς ψευδῆ, γέρον,
πιθανά, νομίζειν χρή σε καὶ τοὐναντίον,
ἄπιστ᾿ ἀληθῆ πολλὰ συμβαίνειν βροτοῖς.
