Be a scribe! It saves you from toil and protects you from all kinds of work. It spares you from using hoe and mattock, that you need not carry a basket. It keeps you from wielding the oar and spares you torment … Now the scribe, he directs all the work in this land.

— Tomb inscription at Memphis (Saqqara) ca. 2100 BC

Pointed out to me by Peter Kurth
