Ageless Wisdom

My friend Charles in Hong Kong drew my attention to what a Roman philosopher and politician said a long time ago:

..."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 lean to work, instead of living on public assistance"...

- Cicero 55 BC
