Pierce Penniless's Supplication to the Devil

thomas nashe /// wyndham lewis /// marshall mcluhan //  trivium font

" The discovery of the alphabet will create forgetfulness in the learners' souls, because they will not use their memories; they will trust to the external written characters and not remember of themselves...You give your disciples not truth but only the semblance of truth; they will be heroes of many things, and will have learned nothing; they will appear to be omniscient and will generally know nothing." - Socrates
