Words of Wisdom

“Writing for him who knows it is better than all other professions. It pleases more than bread and beer, more than clothing and ointment. It is worth more than an inheritance in Egypt, than a tomb in the West.” — from The Instructions of Dua-Khety, Egypt, Middle Kingdom (2055-1650 BC)
