γιγνώσκω . . μοι δοκεῖν—‘on the whole I judge that in my opinion a state accustomed to activity would quickly be ruined by a change to inactivity.’ For γιγνώσκω with infin, see M.T. § 915. μοι δοκεῖν is not superfluons, but is intended to emphasise the contrast between the views of Alc. and Nic.

καὶ τῶν ἀνθρώπων κτλ—this sentiment has become a commonplace, but is capable of being variously applied. The datives go with διαφόρως.
