Sic oportet ad librunt, presertim miscellanei generis, legendum accedere lectorem, ut solet ad convivium conviva civilis.
Coavivator annititur omnibos satisfacere ; et tamen si quid apponitur, quod hujus aut illius palato non respondeat, et hic et
Hle urbane 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.bebaved visitor does to a banquet. The
easter 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, they politely pass it over without notice, and commend other dishes, that
they may not distress a kind host.
