And people are liked ‘who do not strive against, try to thwart, offer opposition to, those who are angry, or in earnest’ (earnestly, seriously, occupied with anything); ‘for all such are pugnacious’. Comp. § 12, πάντες γὰρ οἱ τοιοῦτοι μαχητικοί, οἱ δὲ μαχόμενοι τἀναντία φαίνονται βούλεσθαι, which is the opposite to friendly feeling. ‘And we have a liking for any one that has a good feeling of any kind towards us, such as admiration, and respects us; and thinks well of us, and delights in our society; and this most especially when it happens in the case of any thing for which we wish to be admired ourselves, or thought well of, or to be agreeable’. The first of the two is also a topic of ὀργή, 2. 17.
