Good sentence from a student paper

Regarding Socrates insistance to people like Euthyphro and Meno that a good definition is not a list of examples, a student writes
If Euthyphro said something along the lines of, “Piety can only be defined as this unseen form in which everything ‘real’ participates in”, then Socrates would agree with him100% and walk away actually having less of an idea of what piety is because of the lack of examples from Euthyphro.
This is actually from much earlier in the semester. I'm only revisting it now because I need to compare drafts of a paper.
