RE: quotation and source

Poster: E L Wimett <SILVERDRAGON@Charleston.Net>

There are quite a few early quotes, but I believe the one you are thinking of is from Socrates' Apology, ostensibly the text of the speech he gave in his defence when he was accused of corrupting the youth of Athens.  (It did not work.  He was found guilty and condemned to judicial suicide.)

I would quote it for you, but I only have the Greek text to hand and do not wish to try the patience of the group's parsers. . .

I recall reading a quote discussing the youth of today, their music, their
fashion, their strange ideas, et cetera. Sounds like most older folks
talking about "these kids today", but it comes from ancient Greece. Can
anyone here help me track this down?
