Problem with print

"The greatest misfortune that ever befell man was the invention of printing. Printing has destroyed education . The essence of education is the education of the body . What I admire in the order to which you belong is that they do live in the air; that they excel in athletic sports; that they can only speak one language; and that they never read."

From the 1870 novel `Lothair' by Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881).
