Sie oportet ad libram, presertim miscellanei generis, legendura accedere lectorem. ut solet ad convivium conviva civilis.
Coavirator a' nititur omnibus satisfacere; et tamen si quid apponitur, quod hujus aut illius palato non respondeat, et hic et ille
arbaue disimulant, et alia fercula probaat, 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
mister 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 politely pass it over without notice, and commend other dishes, that they may not
distruse a kind bort.
