You pass for a most remarkable man, omniscient in fact. And all the time—if the truth must out—you know absolutely nothing. Will you join us? I expect huge entertainment from their outcries.
You shall see the rest another day, Menippus. I have seen enough. And if I do scoop it up and get it to my mouth, the outside of my lips is hardly moist before it has managed to run through my fingers, and my hand is as dry as ever.

However, I know that you were a seer, and that you enjoy the unique distinction of having been both man and woman; I have it from the poets.
Pray tell me which you found the more pleasant life, the man's or the woman's?
Women have the mastery of men; and there is no fighting for them, no manning of walls, no squabbling in the assembly, no cross-examination in the law-courts. And by the way—Medea's words remind me did you ever have a child, when you were a woman, or were you barren?
