Quote of the day, Jan. 14

Jared Diamond, from Guns, Germs, and Steel (2005)

“Knowledge brings power. Hence writing brings power to modern societies, by making it possible to transmit knowledge with far greater accuracy and in far greater quantity and detail, from more distant lands and more remote times.”
