Soo weten wy oock wel, dat het niet mogelijck en is, alles door regulen van buyten te leeren, en datmen derhalven het leven in velen diende te gebruycken: maer alsoo het veelmalen gebeurt datmen het leven op die tijt als ’t ons van nooden is, net en kan bekomen, so behoordemen neerstigh te wesen om in sijnen opgaenden tijt alle dingen te modellen, {Hoemen moet soeken veel dingen te modellen.} [….] [ndr: Goeree lists different subjects of which one can create models.] Voornamentlijck moetmen sijn kans waernemen ontrent de vremdigheden,{En welcke voornamentlijck.} […] en somtijts evenwel hebben moet om in sijn Inventien toe te passen; daerom datmen die in verscheyde opsichten en verkiesingen moet sien te bekomen. Staet allen hier in goede toeversicht te nemen, om die Meesterlijck ende niet Kinderachtigh te passe te brengen.

[suggested translation, Marije Osnabrugge:] As such we also recognize that it is not possible to learn everything exhaustively by means of the rules, and that one should therefore make use of the life in many cases: but as it frequently happens that one cannot obtain the life at that moment when it is needed, one should be diligent to make models of all things in the course of time, {How one should attempt to model many things.} […] One should especially grab his chances with regard to the exotic things, {And which specifically.} […] and sometimes are also needed to apply to his Inventions; therefore one should obtain these in different views and situations. Take good care to apply these Masterly and not in a Childish way.
