"People worship God according to their tastes and temperaments.
The mother cooks the same fish differently for her children,
that each one may have what suits his stomach. For some she cooks

For those with weak stomachs she prepares soup. Some, again, like
fried fish or pickled fish. It depends on one's taste."
