Lucretia:All men are reduced in years, when faced with superior mind.= When men are faced with someone more intelligent than themselves, they feel inferior. Quintus:Superior in all accounting!= superior in every way This italki site will also help you http://www.italki.com/knowledge/page/SHAKESPEARES%20LANGUAGE.htm

All men are like children, when they deal with someone who is much more intelligent than they are. A superior mind no matter how you look at it! ---- I imagine that the dialogue is about someone who has outsmarted another person, perhaps manipulated that person into doing something.
