Socrates Asked Another Question

Someone asked

him accusingly

“Do you pray?”

“Yes,” he replied.

“Why?” someone

asked. “Because I

don’t have all the

answers,” he said.

“Would you stop

if you did?” some-

one asked. “If I did

what?” he asked.

“Have all the answers,”

someone said. “Do you

think if I had as

many questions as

Socrates had before

someone handed

him the hemlock,

someone would

hand me the hem-

lock, too?” he asked.

“But what if you had

all the answers?” some-

one asked. “What if I

did?” he asked. “Well,

would you still pray?”

someone asked.

“Would I?” he asked
