    I liked Antidosis and Against the Sophists We would do well to heed their warningsWho does not know that words carry greater conviction when spoken by men of good repute than when spoke by men who live under a cloud and that the argument which is made by a man's life is of weight than that which is furnished by his words?If all who are engaged in the profession of education were willing to state the facts instead of making greater promises than they can possibly fulfill they would not be in such bad repute with the lay publicBut it is not sophists alone who are open to criticism but also those who profess to teach political discourse For the latter have no interest whatever in the truth but consider that they are masters of an art if they can attract great numbers of students by the smallness of their charges and the magnitude of their professions and get something out of themFor ability whether in speech or in any other activity is found in those who are well endowed by nature and have been schooled by practical experience Formal training makes such men skillful and resourceful in discovering the possibilities of a subject; for it teaches them to take from a readier source the topics which they otherwise hit upon in haphazard fashion But it cannot fully fashion men who are without natural aptitude into good debaters or writers although it is capable of leading them on to self improvement and to a greater degree of intelligence on many subjectsI hold that there does not exist an art of the kind which can implant sobriety and justice in depraved natures
