Sir oportet ad dhrum, presertim miscellanei generis, legendum accedere lectorem, ut sol, , ad convivium conviva civilis.
Convivator annititur omnibus satisfacere; et tanleu si quid apponitur, quod hujus aut illius palato non respondeat, et hic et ille
irtane 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 feast exerts numself 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 coluluend outer dishes, that they may not
distres a kind host. Translation.
