Contra o Plágio

Being asked by someone how much he owed him for what he had learned, "If you will tell them that you learned it from me," [Thales] replied, "you will have recompensed me for your education."

ἐρομένου γάρ τινος, ὑπὲρ ὧν ἔμαθεν ὁπόσον τινὰ χρὴ καταβαλεῖν μισθόν· "ὁμολογῶν", ἔφη, "τὸ παρ'ἡμῶν μαθεῖν τὴν ἀξίαν ἡμῖν ἐκτίσεις."
