Note to Anon Hsv 49VII

[All]: Lat. parallel: (Dist. I, 36) Litem inferre cave cum quo tibi gratia iuncta est, / ira odium generat, concordia nutrit amorem ‘Beware of starting a fight with someone who is closely joined to you; anger brings about hatred; harmony nourishes love’. A similar topic is dealt with in Hsv 7.
