What is Lady Philosophy’s argument that demonstrates that the good (virtuous) person is necessarily strong and the wicked is necessarily weak?

i don't understand at all over my head at the moment?

Lady Philosophy essentially argues that wickedness is fleeting and even non-existent in the strictest sense. Because goodness and wickedness are constituting elements of human beings, it is true then that wickedness becomes a "substance-less substance." This sort of constitution is necessarily weak for seemingly obvious reasons.
