A Magnificent Feast

John Selden (1584-1654), Table-Talk, ed. Samuel Harvey Reynolds (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1892), p. 39 (XVI.3):
A glorious church is like a magnificent feast, there is all the variety that may be, but every one chooses out a dish or two that he likes, and lets the rest alone. How glorious soever the church is, every one chooses out of it his own religion, by which he governs himself, and lets the rest alone.
