“Cebes laughed.  Suppose we are afraid, Socrates, he said….

Probably even in us there is a little boy who has these childish terrors.  Try to persuade him not to be afraid of death as though it were a bogey.

What you should do, said Socrates, is to say a magic spell over him every day until you have charmed his fears away.

But, Socrates, said Simonias, where can we find a magician who understands these spells now that you….are leaving us?

Greece is a large country, Cebes, he replied.

-Plato, Phaedo
