The greater the emotion with which we conceive a loved object to be afected towards us, the greater will be our complacency.

Quo majore affectu rem amatam erga nos affectam esse imaginamur, eo magis gloriabimur.

Quo majore affectu rem amatam erga nos affectam esse imaginamur, eo magis gloriabimur.

Plus grande est l'affection que nous imaginons que la chose aimée éprouve à notre égard, plus nous nous glorifierons. (Appuhn - fr)

Je stärker wir uns den Affekt vorstellen, von dem der geliebte Gegenstand gegen uns erregt ist, desto mehr werden wir uns geehrt fühlen. (Stern - de)

Quanto più grande è il sentimento d'amore che immaginiamo provato verso di noi dalla cosa che noi amiamo, tanto maggiore sarà la nostra esaltazione, ossia tanto più noi ci glorieremo. (Peri - it)

Hoe grooter wij ons de genegenheid voorstellen welke een geliefd wezen voor ons gevoelt, hoe meer wij ons daarop zullen verheffen. (Suchtelen - nl)

Cuanto mayor es el afecto que imaginamos experimenta hacia nosotros la cosa amada, tanto más nos gloriaremos. (Peña - es)

Plus grand est l'affect dont nous imaginons que l'objet aimé est affecté envers nous, plus nous nous glorifierons. (Misrahi - fr)

3, prop 34, demo  - We endeavour (III. xxxiii.), as far as we can, to bring about, that what we love should love us in return: in other words, that what we love should be affected with pleasure accompanied by the idea of ourself as cause. Therefore, in proportion as the loved object is more pleasurably affected because of us, our endeavour will be assisted.--that is (III. xi. and note) the greater will be our pleasure. But when we take pleasure in the fact, that we pleasurably affect something similar to ourselves, we regard ourselves with pleasure (III. 30); therefore the greater the emotion with which we conceive a loved object to be affected, &c. Q.E.D.

3, prop 34, demo  - Nos (per propositionem praecedentem) conamur quantum possumus ut res amata nos contra amet hoc est (per scholium propositionis 13 hujus) ut res amata laetitia afficiatur concomitante idea nostri. Quo itaque rem amatam majore laetitia nostra de causa affectam esse imaginamur, eo magis hic conatus juvatur hoc est (per propositionem 11 hujus cum ejus scholio) eo majore laetitia afficimur. At cum ex eo laetemur quod alium nobis similem laetitia affecimus, tum nosmet cum laetitia contemplamur (per propositionem 30 hujus) : ergo quo majore affectu rem amatam erga nos affectam esse imaginamur, eo majore laetitia nosmet contemplabimur sive (per scholium propositionis 30 hujus) eo magis gloriabimur. Q.E.D.

3, prop 34, demo  - Nous faisons effort, autant que nous pouvons (Prop. préc.), pour faire que la chose aimée nous aime à son tour ; c'est-à-dire (Scolie de la Prop. 13) que la chose aimée soit affectée d'une Joie qu'accompagne l'idée de nous-mêmes. Plus grande donc est la Joie dont nous imaginons que la chose est affectée à cause de nous, plus cet effort est secondé, c'est-à-dire (Prop. 11 avec son Scolie) plus grande est la Joie dont nous sommes affectés. Mais, puisque notre Joie provient de ce que nous avons affecté de Joie un de nos semblables, nous nous considérons nous-même avec Joie (Prop. 30) donc, plus grande est l'affection que nous imaginons que la chose aimée éprouve à notre égard, plus grande est la Joie avec laquelle nous nous considérerons nous-mêmes, c'est-à-dire plus nous nous glorifierons. C.Q.F.D. (Appuhn - fr)

3, prop 34, demo  - Wir streben, soviel wir vermögen (nach dem vorigen Lehrsatz), daß der geliebte Gegenstand uns wiederum liebe; d.h. (nach Anmerkung zu Lehrsatz 13 dieses Teils), daß der geliebte Gegenstand von Lust erregt werde, verbunden mit der Idee unserer selbst. Je stärker wir uns also die Lust vorstellen, von welcher der geliebte Gegenstand um unseretwillen erregt ist, desto mehr wird dieses Streben gefördert; d.h. (nach Lehrsatz 11 dieses Teils mit seiner Anmerkung) von desto stärkerer Lust werden wir erregt. Wenn wir aber darüber Lust empfinden, daß wir einen andern unseresgleichen mit Lust erregt haben, so betrachtenwir uns selbst mit Lust (nach Lehrsatz 30 dieses Teils). Je stärker wir uns also den Affekt vorstellen, von dem der geliebte Gegenstand gegen uns erregt ist, mit um so stärkerer Lust werden wir uns selbst betrachten oder (nach Anmerkung zu Lehrsatz 30 dieses Teils) desto mehr werden wir uns geehrt fühlen. - W.z.b.w. (Stern - de)

3, prop 34, demo  - Noi ci sforziamo, per quanto possiamo (Prop. preced.), affinché la cosa da noi amata ci ami a sua volta, cioè (Chiarim. d. Prop. 13 di questa Parte) affinché la cosa amata provi una Letizia accompagnata dall'idea di noi stessi. Quanto maggiore dunque immaginiamo che sia la Letizia provata dalla cosa amata per causa nostra, tanto più il nostro sforzo è assecondato, cioè (Prop. 11 di questa Parte, e suo Chiarim.) tanto maggiore è la Letizia che noi proviamo. Ma quanto noi ci allietiamo d'aver arrecato Letizia a un nostro simile, tanto consideriamo noi stessi con Letizia (Prop. 30 qui sopra): e dunque, quanto maggiore è il sentimento d'amore che immaginiamo provato verso di noi dalla cosa che noi amiamo, tanto maggiore è la Letizia con cui considereremo noi stessi, ossia (Chiarim d. Prop. 30 qui sopra) tanto più ci glorieremo. (Peri - it)

3, prop 34, demo  - Wij trachten (vlg. voorgaande St.) zooveel mogelijk te bewerken dat een geliefde wezen ons wedermint, d.w.z. (vlg. Opmerking St. XIII v.d. D.) dat het geliefde wezen een Blijheid ondervinde, vergezeld door de gedachte aan ons zelf. Hoe grooter dus de Blijheid is, welke naar onze voorstelling het geliefde wezen door ons toedoen ondervindt, hoe meer dit streven wordt bevorderd; d.w.z. (vlg. St. XI en Opmerking v.d. D.) hoe grooter Blijheid ook wij gevoelen. Wanneer wij ons evenwel verblijden, omdat wij een ander, ons gelijkend wezen, Blijheid schonken, dan zullen wij (vlg. St. XXX v.d. D.) ook onszelf met Blijheid beschouwen. Derhalve: hoe grooter wij ons de genegenheid voorstellen, welke een geliefd wezen voor ons gevoelt, met hoe grooter Blijheid wij onszelf zullen beschouwen, ofwel (vlg. Opmerking St. XXX v.d. D.) hoemeer wij ons daarop zullen verheffen. H.t.b.w. (Suchtelen - nl)

3, prop 34, demo  - Nos esforzamos cuanto podemos (por la Proposición anterior) para que la cosa amada nos ame a su vez, esto es (por el Escolio de la Proposición 13 de esta Parte), para que la cosa amada sea afectada por una alegría acompañada de la idea de nosotros mismos. Así pues, cuanto mayor imaginamos la alegría de que es afectada la cosa amada por causa nuestra, tanto más favorecido resulta ese esfuerzo, es decir (por la Proposición 11 de esta Parte, con su Escolio), tanto mayor es la alegría que nos afecta. Ahora bien, como nos alegramos porque hemos afectado de alegría a un semejante nuestro, entonces nos consideramos a nosotros mismos con alegría (por la Proposición 30 de esta Parte); por consiguiente, cuanto mayor es el afecto que imaginamos experimenta hacia nosotros la cosa amada, con tanta mayor alegría nos consideraremos a nosotros mismos, o sea (por el Escolio de la Proposición 30 de esta Parte), tanto más nos gloriaremos. Q.E.D. (Peña - es)

3, prop 34, demo  - Autant que nous le pouvons, nous nous efforçons (par la Proposition précédente) de faire que l'objet aimé nous aime en retour, c'est-à-dire (par le Scolie de la Proposition 13) que l'objet aimé soit affecté d'une Joie accompagnée de l'idée de nous-même. Plus grande est donc la Joie dont nous imaginons que l'aimé est affecté à cause de nous, plus cet effort est secondé, c'est-à-dire (par la Proposition 11 avec son Scolie) plus grande est la Joie dont nous sommes affecté. Mais puisque notre Joie vient du fait que nous avons affecté de Joie un autre semblable à nous, nous nous considérerons nous-même avec Joie (par la Proposition 30) : donc, plus grand est l'affect dont nous imaginons que l'aimé est affecté à notre égard, plus grande sera la Joie avec laquelle nous nous considérerons nous-même, c'est-à-dire (par le Scolie de la même Proposition 30) plus nous nous glorifierons. C.Q.F.D. (Misrahi - fr)

3, prop 33 - When we love a thing similar to ourselves we endeavour, as far as we can, to bring about that it should love us in return.

3, prop 13, sc  - From what has been said we may, clearly understand the nature of Love and Hate. Love is nothing else but pleasure accompanied by the idea, of an external cause: Hate is nothing else but pain accompanied by the idea of an external cause. We further see, that he who loves necessarily endeavours to have, and to keep present to him, the object of his love; while he who hates endeavours to remove and destroy the object of his hatred. But I will treat of these matters at more length hereafter.

3, prop 11 - Whatsoever increases or diminishes, helps or hinders the power of activity in our body, the idea thereof increases or diminishes, helps or hinders the power of thought in our mind.

3, prop 11, sc  - Thus we see, that the mind can undergo many changes, and can pass sometimes to a state of greater perfection, sometimes to a state of lesser perfection. These passive states of transition explain to us the emotions of pleasure and pain. By pleasure therefore in the following propositions I shall signify a passive state wherein the mind passes to a greater perfection. By pain I shall signify a passive state wherein the mind passes to a lesser perfection. Further, the emotion of pleasure in reference to the body and mind together I shall call stimulation (titillatio) or merriment (hilaritas), the emotion of pain in the same relation I shall call suffering or melancholy. But we must bear in mind, that stimulation and suffering are attributed to man, when one part of his nature is more affected than the rest, merriment and melancholy, when all parts are alike affected. What I mean by desire I have explained in the note to Prop. ix. of this part; beyond these three I recognize no other primary emotion; I will show as I proceed, that all other emotions arise from these three. But, before I go further, I should like here to explain at greater length Prop. x. of this part, in order that we may clearly, understand how one idea is contrary to another. In the note to II. xvii. we showed that the idea, which constitutes the essence of mind, involves the existence of body, so long as the body itself exists. Again, it follows from what we pointed out in the Coroll. to II. viii., that the present existence of our mind depends solely on the fact, that the mind involves the actual existence of the body. Lastly, we showed (II. xvii. xviii. and note) that the power of the mind, whereby it imagines and remembers things, also depends on the fact, that it involves the actual existence of the body. Whence it follows, that the present existence of the mind and its power of imagining are removed, as soon as the mind ceases to affirm the present existence of the body. Now the cause, why the mind ceases to affirm this existence of the body, cannot be the mind itself (III. iv.), nor again the fact that the body ceases to exist. For (by II. vi.) the cause, why the mind affirms the existence of the body, is not that the body began to exist; therefore, for the same reason, it does not cease to affirm the existence of the body, because the body ceases to exist; but (II. xvii.) this result follows from another idea, which excludes the present existence of our body and, consequently, of our mind, and which is therefore contrary to the idea constituting the essence of our mind.

3, prop 30 - If anyone has done something which he conceives as affecting other men pleasurably, he will be affected by pleasure, accompanied by the idea of himself as cause; in other words, he will regard himself with pleasure. On the other hand, if he has done anything which he conceives as affecting others painfully, he will regard himself with pain.

3, prop 30, sc  - As love (III. xiii.) is pleasure accompanied by the idea of an external cause, and hatred is pain accompanied by the idea of an external cause; the pleasure and pain in question will be a species of love and hatred. But, as the terms love and hatred are used in reference to external objects, we will employ other names for the emotions now under discussion: pleasure accompanied by the idea of an external cause we will style Honour, and the emotion contrary thereto we will style Shame: I mean in such cases as where pleasure or pain arises from a man's belief, that he is being praised or blamed: otherwise pleasure accompanied by the idea of an external cause is called self-complacency, and its contrary pain is called repentance. Again, as it may happen (II. xvii. Coroll.) that the pleasure, wherewith a man conceives that he affects others, may exist solely in his own imagination, and as (III. xxv.) everyone endeavours to conceive concerning himself that which he conceives will affect him with pleasure, it may easily come to pass that a vain man may be proud and may imagine that he is pleasing to all, when in reality he may be an annoyance to all.
