A quote from Socrates the Greek scholar from 2400 years ago,

"The youth of today love luxury; they have bad manners and contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Youth 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 food at the table, and tyrannize their teachers."

Seems like some things will never change and just the way of nature and the circle of life. Although I bet the youth of those days would think they were in paradise in the here and now. I bet my mum and dad used to say the same thing when I was a youth as did my grandparents when they were. Do you ever say something and think 'OH NO I sound just like my mother or father' Laughing
