Hegel gets colloquial

From page 1174-5, Volume 2 of the Aesthetics, translated by T.M. Knox.

“If a book does not please me, I can lay it aside, just as I can pass by pictures or statues that are not to my taste, and in that case the author always has available more or less the excuse that his book was not written for every Tom, Dick, or Harry.”
