I thought I once heard something like the following quote:

No more effective device has yet been invented to prevent one man from helping another as writing a book.

or maybe

There is no more effective device to excuse a man from helping others as writing a book.

I also thought I heard that it was by C. S. Lewis.

I can't find it anywhere. Does it ring a bell for anyone?
