Gulliver in Liliput - This picture has been made to a mural at the facade of a toy-shop in Bremen, GermanySatire is a sort of glass, wherein beholders do generally discover everybody's face but their own, which is the chief reason for that kind of reception it meets in the world, and that so very few are offended with it.

-- Jonathan Swift( 1667-1745), satirist, The Battle of the Books, preface (1704)
