Wednesday’s Written Word
“I tell you, sir, it’s the end of the world. Never has there been such an unruly mob of students! It’s the accursed inventions of the age that are ruining everything–the artillery, the muskets, the cannons, and above all the printing press, that scourge brought from Germany. No more manuscripts, no more books. Printing is ruining bookselling. The end of the world is upon us.”
~Master Andry Musnier, in Victor Hugo’s The Hunchback of Notre-Dame
Some things never change.
