Secondary impressions, or impressions of reflection, are “such as proceed from some of these original ones, either immediately or by the interposition of its idea” (Op. cit. II, 1, 1). These secondary impressions are the passions: and these in their turn may be divided into calm passions (such as aesthetic emotions) and violent passions (passions strictly so called, such as love).

The first idea, therefore, represents the cause, the second the object of the passion” (Op. cit. II, 1, 2). 1 Since one can be proud of a suit of clothes it is therefore a little surprising to find that Hume denies that this is the object of pride. Still, it is clear that Hume is pointing out that in pride whatever one is proud of makes one feel pleased with oneself; and perhaps we could put his point by saying that whatever expression completes the sense of the verb “…is proud of…” must begin with “his own…”, even if what a man is proud of is only his brother-in-law’s acquaintance with the second cousin of a Duke.
