In Orberg LLPSI Cap XXXII: Medus reminds the ship's captain that he has recently said that he (the captain) prefers death to living as a slave: 'Iamne oblitus es quid modo dixeris? Dixisti enim 'te mortem servituti praeferre.'
The captain then says: 'Haud scio an ego ita dixerim, sed profecto libertas mihi vita carior est. [certainly freedom is dearer to me than life'.
Then he says: Nihil libertati praefero. 'I would not rather freedom' ??
Doesn't this just contradict the previous sentence..?
