I’ve come to consider again two quotes which relate to Ancient Egypt. I learned about these from an anthology of Ancient Egypt I read recently, and noticed these again when I thought about the post I made earlier today on continuing to write (actively).
Without further ado:
Study writings and commit them to memory; then all your words will be effective.
— ‘The Teaching of Ani’
Man perishes; his corpse turns to dust; all his relatives pass
away. But writings make him remembered. . .
