People Never Change

I was amused by a quotation I read on Twitter the other day.  It summed up conversations, recent experiences and the latest news.

“Times are bad. Children no longer obey their parents, and everyone is writing a book.”

That's not the significant bit.  What I found interesting is that quote was one of many by Cicero.  A Roman politician who lived from 106 BC to 43 BC.

Over 2000 years apart and the society we live in is still recognisable.  At least modern back stabbing is limited to verbal comments... mostly.
