Sixteenth Century Quote of the Week

"The readers and the hearers
like my books,
But yet some writers cannot them digest;
But what care I? for when I make a feast
I would my guests should praise it,
not the cooks."

Sir John Harington (1561-1612)
English courtier, author and inventor of
the flush toilet
Epigrams. Of Writers Who Carp at Other Men's Books
