Today's Quote About The Young

Here it is:

“Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room; they contradict their parents, chatter before company; gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers.”

That is attributed to Socrates.  I have read similar views from the era of the Roman empire.
