Nihil legebat quod non excerperet.—Pliny's Ep.
Il ne lit rien qu il ne trouve a en extraire quelque chose.-Quit
laume le franc Parleur.
From grave to gay; from lively to severe.-Pope.
"It is false to assert that any harm is done by the publication of
common-place productions. They defraud no person of his money,
no one being compelled to purchase them; and they rob no one of
his time, for no one is bound to read them. On the other hand,
even the reasoner whose dim scope of vision never looks beyond the
wealth of nations will not assert that no good is done by it; for, the
letter-founder, the paper-maker, the printer, the book-seller, and
all their dependents, confute such an assertion. The most humble
volume that ever stole into oblivion from the press, has been useful
to them."-Quart. Rev. Dec. 1811.
