Ptahhotep Said

Be a scribe! Your body will be sleek, your hand will be soft. You are one who sits grandly in your house; your servants answer speedily; beer is poured copiously; all who see you rejoice in good cheer. Happy is the heart of him who writes; he is young each day.

(hattip to scarlettina, this dates from 4,500 BCE.)

Copious beer and young heart? Aye, by god.

Sleek body, soft hands, sitting grandly, speedy servants, and rejoicing...erm....maybe not as much. :-)
