43 Kritias, Rhadamanthys fr 17 Sn – pp. 179-80

We (mortals) have all sorts of passions in life. For one man desires to acquire noble birth, while another has no concern for this, but he wishes to be called the father of many possessions in his house. And it is satisfying to another man to persuade his neighbors with wicked boldness, speaking nothing wholesome from his heart. Others seek shameful profits ahead of what is fine/noble among mortals. Thus the life of men is a deviation (from what is right). But I myself do not desire to meet with any of these things, and I would wish my reputation to have glory.  (Transl. Nick Gardner)  EGM p. 260 upper
