Book: “Nowadays.”  Book consisting entirely of quotations that begin “Nowadays,” or “These days,” or “In our time…” etc.  Vivid examples of how people in every era, from the Greeks on, believed that their own age was hopelessly corrupt, mediocre, or both, and how things have been going continuously to the dogs since the beginning of civilization.

  1. “Times are bad. Children no longer obey their parents, and everyone is writing a book”
    Marcus Tullius Cicero, statesman (106-43 BC)
