Protagoras
You, Socrates, began by saying that virtue can't be taught, and now you are insisting on the opposite, trying to show that all things are knowledge, justice, soundness of mind, even courage, from which it would follow that virtue most certainly can be taught.
Protagoras quotes
As to the gods, I have no means of knowing either that they exist or do not exist, or what they are like.
Protagoras
The Athenians are right to accept advice from anyone, since it is incumbent on everyone to share in that sort of excellence, or else there can be no city at all.




Protagoras quotes
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.
Protagoras
Man is the measure of all things: of things which are, that they are, and of things which are not, that they are not.
Protagoras quotes
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.
Protagoras
There are two sides to every question.
Protagoras quotes
When it comes to consideration of how to do well in running the city, which must proceed entirely through justice and soundness of mind.
