Sic oportet ad tibrum, presertim miscellanei generis, legendum accedere vectorem, ut solet au convivium conviva civilis.
Cousivator atinititer omnibus satisfacere; et tanen si quid apponitur, quod hujus aut illius palato non respondeat, et hic et ille
arsane dissimulant, et alia fercula probant, ne quid contristent convivatorem.

Erasmus.
A reader should sit down to a book, especially of the miscellaneous kind, as a well-behaved visitor does to a banquet. The
master of the least exerts himself to satisfy his guests ; but if, after all his care and pains, something should appear on the table
that does not suit this or that person's taste, they politelv dass it over without notice. and commend other dishes, that they may not
tistess a kiod boul.
