Pantagruel on the hillside

"But see in what manner I mean that we shall dispute. I will not argue pro et contra, as do the sottish sophisters of this town and other places.

"Likewise I will not dispute after the manner of the Academics by
declamation; nor yet by numbers, as Pythagoras was wont to do, and as Picus de la Mirandula did of late at Rome.

"But I will dispute by signs only, without speaking, for the matters are so abstruse, hard, and arduous, that words proceeding from the mouth of man will never be sufficient for unfolding of them to my liking."

Francois Rabelais, Pantagruel, chapter 2.XVIII
