Sic oportet ad tibrum, presertim miscellanei generis, legendum accedere lectorem, ut solet ad convivium conviva civilis.
Convivator annititur omnibus satisfacere; et tamen si quid apponitur, quod hujus aut illius palato non respondeat, et hic et ille
urbane dissimulant, et alia fercula probant, ne quid contristent convivatorem.

Erasmus.
A reader should sit down to a book, especially of the miscelaneous kind, as a well-behaved visitor does to a banquet. The
master of the feast 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. thev politely pass it over without notice, and commend other dishes. that thev mav not
distress a kind host.
