Familiar?

8 Aug

“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 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 tyrannise their teachers,” [Socrates about 400BC]

Heard this quote some years ago but was reminded of it recently and this seems a good place so I don’t lose it again
