Religious truth is captive in a small number of little manuscripts which guard the common treasures, instead of expanding them.
Let us break the seal which binds these holy things; let us give wings to truth
that it may fly with the Word, no longer prepared at vast expense, but mulititudes everlastingly by a machine which never wearies to every soul which enters life.
-- Johann Gutenberg
