I saw this sign in a room filled with typewriters. “To save time is to lengthen life.” This was then accompanied by a list of that same quote in 84 different languages. I can only assume that this was referring to the time saved since the typewriter was invented. I could elaborate on why I disagree and find this quote pretty amusing but instead I will just put it out there for you to draw your own conclusions.
*This was found in the Slovak Technical Museum which has some very interesting exhibits on communication technologies. The museum also displayed some copies of Leonardo da Vinci’s work which included models of some of his drawings and inventions and how they worked. Needless to say I thought the museum tour was a very interesting and worthwhile… and my life is no shorter for it.
