Something like Bread.  Bread neutralises and takes out the taste of other food, and is therefore necessary to every long meal.  In all works of art there must be something like bread, in order that they may produce divers effects.  If these effects followed one another without occasional pauses and intervals, they would soon make us weary and provoke disgust — in fact, a long meal of art would then be impossible.
