Francis Bacon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_Bacon

“Printing, gunpowder and the compass: These three have changed the whole face and state of things throughout the world; the first in literature, the second in warfare, the third in navigation; whence have followed innumerable changes, in so much that no empire, no sect, no star seems to have exerted greater power and influence in human affairs than these mechanical discoveries.”[33]
