Plato on Writing

“For this invention will encourage forgetfulness in the minds that use it because they will not practice their memory. Their trust in writing, produced by external characters which are no part of themselves, will discourage the use of their own memory within them. You have invented an elixir not of memory but of reminding and you offer your pupils the appearance of wisdom not true wisdom.”
