Te totum applica ad textum: rem totam applica ad te.

     Johann Albrecht Bengel, Praefatio to the octavo Greek Testament of 1734 (Η ΚΑΙΝΗ ΔΙΑΘΗΚΗ | NOVUM TESTAMENTUM GRÆCUM ita adornatum ut in textu medulla editionum probatarum retineatur . . . (Stuttgart:  Faber, 1734)), sec. XII.  See, for example, p. 11 of the printing of 1762.
     This is sometimes quoted as "Te totum applica ad textum, totum textum applica ad te."
