My work is not a piece of writing designed to meet the taste of an immediate public

My work is not a piece of writing designed to meet the taste of an immediate public, but was done to last for ever.
— Thucydides (c.431–c.404 BCE)

Mine too was not designed to meet the taste of an immediate public, but simply to meet my own. Its success is a bonus; and a much appreciated one.
