“Is there any affliction now endured by mankind that was not endured by our fathers before us? What sufferings of ours even bears comparison with what we know of their sufferings? And yet you hear people complaining about this present day and age because things were so much better in former times. I wonder what would happen if they could be taken back to the days of their ancestors–would we not still hear them complaining?  You may think past ages were good, but it is only because you are not living in them.”  (St. Augustine, 354-430 AD)

“…Everything is amazing right now and nobody’s happy.”  (Comedian Louis C.K., 2009 AD)
