I have studied Ancient Greek and Latin at school, aeons ago. I remember that once a sentence popped up in a translation, and it was something along the lines of TODAY'S YOUNG PEOPLE PREFER LISTENING TO A DISC RATHER THAN TO A PHILOSOPHER (a throwing disc was meant here).
Since then, this quote has been a favourite of mine and it keeps popping up in conversation whenever we get to talking about how the younger generation is going down the drain. I like to point out that this has been a common complain since ancient times.
Now, I would really really like to know who wrote this and perhaps even have the quote in the original language! And sorry, I can't remember if it was Greek or Latin.
