I have a quote by Socrates (Plato) up on our fridge:
"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."
I actually love Socrates for his belief in the importance of asking questions of yourself and others to find the best answers, and use his methods (as he admits, methods he was taught by others!) and it is just funny to see him (or Plato or whoever was taking dictation for him) be surprised by these darn kids of today.
