Some Things Never Change...

Recommended Posts

I was reading one of Elly's posts and I instantly thought of this...


It is believed that Socrates said this somewhere between 469 BC and 399 BC:


"The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers."
