According to the passage, calculated affection
- appears to be false and fabricated
- makes other person to love you
- turns into permanent affection over a period of time
- leads to self-pity
- gives a feeling of courage
“But it is useless to attempt to give it as a calculation, in the way in which one might lend money at interest, for a calculated affection is not honest and is not felt to be so by the beneficiary.” Thus it suggests that calculated affection is false.
