More Wise Words

3. It was actually Socrates; my bad. Here it is:

"The children today love luxury, they have bad manners, contempt for authority and show disrespect to their elders. They are now tyrants and not servants in their households and no longer rise when elders enter the room. The future is lost if left to them."
