[The palace in Troy.]

Hector [precognitively]:
Paris and Troilus, you have both said well,
But on the cause and question now in hand
Have glossed but superficially — not much
Unlike young men, whom Aristotle thought
Unfit to hear moral philosophy.
William Shakespeare
Troilus and Cressida, 2.2.162-166
