Ste oportet ad librum, presertim miscellanei generis, legendam accedere lectorem, ut solet ad convivium conviva civilis.
Corvirator aanititer omnibus satisfacere; et tamen si quid apponitur, quod hujus aut illius palato non respondeat, et hic et ille
urbane diesimulant, et alia fercula probant, ne quid cootristent 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
Ester 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
distres a kind bost.
