Who Said It?

Quote of the Day

“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations have been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: from bondage to spiritual faith to great courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependency; from dependency back to bondage.”

Sir Alex Fraser Tyler, “Decline And Fall of the Athenian Republic”, circa 1799

P.S. I know, I know – posting quotes is an easy way out 🙂 But I’m enjoying sharing them. Soon I’ll return to the regular conversational posts.
