  Of satires I think as Epictetus did: “If evil be said of thee, and if it be true, correct thyself; if it be a lie, laugh at it.” By dint of time and experience I have learned to be a good post-horse: I go through my appointed stage, and I care not for the curs who bark at me along the road.
Frederick the Great.
