Oh, the Pain, the Suffering We Must Endure...

'A man who knows not how to write may think this is no great feat. But only try to do it yourself and you will learn how arduous is the writer’s task. It dims your eyes, makes your back ache, and knits your chest and belly together – it is a terrible ordeal for the human body. So, gentle reader, turn these pages carefully and keep your fingers far from the text.'
–Prior Robert Alden, C1300 AD
