  1. “The budget should be balanced, the treasury should be refilled, public debt should be
    reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the
    assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome become bankrupt. People
    must again learn to work instead of living on public assistance.”
    Cicero in 55 B.C.

  5. "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."

    ~ Socrates, 400 BC
