Applause for your bold first post bethann, and eversosuccinct blitherer! Two conversational pieces. I still think: 'foible forte riposte élan touché... what stew to cook from this porridge?'.

A rather liberal use of the words and open to critisism but:

With foible fingers he had tried to play forte on the grand piano, but where was the élan which used to gain him that warm riposte of applause; had he really lost his touché?

He received counsel wise from his mentor,
Nestor gave love advice -- brave inventor!
"Neither hector nor bully
Your Tartary filly,
Young satyr, seize what heaven sent her!"

Sorry blitherer. Besides them being impossible words I've had no time to get it together this weekend. I hope I will catch up in coming days and still try to understand the exacts from your brave sentence(s):~)

Young satyr, beware of choosing a nestor for your mentor; like a true hector he'll bully you the tartar off your teeth.

At first his position seemed tenable through the casuistry of his advisors, but the emergence of discrepant views rendered all his consuetudinary bonhomie unavailing.
