Today as I quickly glanced at my Facebook feed – less and less these days – I came across this amazing quote from the 1st century.
“Today we have self-indulgence and greed, public poverty and private opulence. We praise riches: we pursue a course of sloth. No distinction is made between good men and bad. No wonder each of you thinks only of his own private interest; when at home you are slaves to your appetites and to money, and to influence in public life.”
Gaius Sallustius Crispus
It reminds me that once again the writer of Ecclesiasties was right “There is nothing new under the sun”.
