“It has been said: ‘Young people nowadays love luxury; they have bad manners and contempt for authority. They show disrespect for old people and love silly talk in place of exercise. They no longer stand up when older people enter the room; they contradict their parents, talk constantly in front of company, gobble their food, and tyrannize their teachers.’

“It almost sounds like something you might overhear in the hallways of your church. But it was said by Socrates in 400 BC. There’s a cyclical nature built into how we humans deal with some universal realities.”
