Plutarch Life of Pericles 8.8 = 74a Radt

How to quote this translation

καί ποτε τοῦ Σοφοκλέους, ὅτε συστρατηγῶν ἐξέπλευσε μετ’ αὐτοῦ, παῖδα καλὸν ἐπαινέσαντος “οὐ μόνον” ἔφη “τὰς χεῖρας, ὦ Σοφόκλεις, δεῖ καθαρὰς ἔχειν τὸν στρατηγόν, ἀλλὰ καὶ τὰς ὄψεις.”

Once, when Sophocles, who was serving as general at the same time <as Pericles> and had sailed out with him on a ship, praised an attractive young boy, he replied, ‘a general does not only need pure hands, Sophocles, but also a pure gaze.’
