I recall checking through James Henry Breasted's translations of Egyptian writings but I think that was dated like 1905. There have been a century of discoveries since then.

Ancient Egyptian works to be published together in English for first time


Words of wisdom in a text called The Teaching of Ani remain as true today as in the 16th century BC: “Man perishes; his corpse turns to dust; all his relatives pass away. But writings make him remembered in the mouth of the reader.”
