S. S. Chronicle
You shall rise up before the hoary head, and honor the face of the old man, and fear your God: I am the LORD.
One day (Cicero tells the story in his treatise on "Old Age,") an aged Athenian came into the theatre, but not one of his fellow-citizens in that immense crowd would incommode himself to make room for him. As, however, he approached the ambassadors from Lacedaemon, who had their own special seat, they all rose to receive him into their midst. The whole assembly burst into applause, whereupon somebody said, "The Athenians know what is good, but they will not practise it." Many people know what is right but turn a deaf ear to conscience, and neglect their duty, although it has been made clear to them what that duty is.
