Quote of the Day - Socrates

At first glance this seems like a contemporary critique of Millennials or even younger people today, but actually it was penned by Socrates in lamenting the youth of his day.
"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." ~ Socrates
