There's nothing new under the sun

One of my clients sent me an e-mail the other day of the following quote:

"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work,instead of living on public assistance."

If you thought this was something you heard during the most recent Presidential election, then you’ll be surprised to learn that it was actually said almost 2,100 years ago in 63 B.C. by Marcus Tillius Cicero (106-43 B.C.), a Roman statesman, philosopher and orator.

This proves, once again, that there’s nothing new under the sun.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
