I've gotten the same sort of message. It appears in the lpr.log and

If you wish to prosper, let your customer prosper. This is a
lesson it has taken you a very long time to learn.
When people have learned this lesson, everyone will seek his

man and man, city and city, province and province, nation and
nation, will no longer trouble the world.
