“Readers’ Bad Manners” — Nietzsche

Friedrich Nietzsche. From Mixed Opinions and Maxims:

(130) Reader’s bad manners. —A reader is doubly guilty of bad manners against the author when he praises his second book at the expense of the first (or vice versa) and then asks the author to be grateful for that.
