Hmmm. Must have been the same Ptahotep who said:

"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."

Some days, I'd settle for the beer, much less any of the rest.
