Socrates Saying: The invention of writing will produce forgetfulness in the minds of those who learn to use it, because they will not practice their memory.

Socrates Quote: The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.
