“ Here are some score of good fellows, my Masters, primed with salt sayings —
wit-catchers! -discreet laughers. Their conversations are worth attending to.
The smallest man among 'em shall tell you a story, and you will not be made to
yawn more than once over it."

The Club-Men of Clithero. 1705.
Whoever will live altogether out of himself, and study other men's HUMORS,
shall never be unfortunate."

Sir Walter Raleigh.
“ Though my desire be to make Fun for the many, I have taken care that no
individual shall be pained by aught that I have written. No man, maid, or
mother, can justly cry out,- In such or such a matter, thy finger is pointed at
me.' Therefore, say I, in the words of the Poet, SiTMIHI FAS AUDITA LOQUI.'"
