As soon as this came my way, I knew I wanted to share it. David Ogilvy would have
hired this fellow in a heartbeat! I especially love the last line:
“Be a scribe! Your body will be sleek, your hand will be soft . . .
You are one who sits grandly in your house; your servants
answer speedily; beer is poured copiously; all who see you
rejoice in good cheer. Happy is the heart of him who writes;
he is young each day.”
Ptahotep, 4500 B.C.
