Quote of the day. "Translations* and dishes have this common fate; there was never any one of either of them, that pleased all palates. And in truth, it is a thing as little to be wished for, as expected, for an universal applause is at least two thirds of a scandal"

Sir Roger L'Estrange, 1673
* the quote has been slightly altered to suit mermaidian quoting needs, original says books rather than translations...

This is another quote I won´t forget from you, along with "Insincerity is language´s ultimate enemy" something like that?
