Laudator Temporis Acti

In the Horatian passage from which I borrowed the title for this blog, the praiser of time past is not viewed favorably:
Hard to get along with, a complainer, a praiser of time past / when he was a boy, a blamer and critic of the younger generation. (difficilis, querulus, laudator temporis acti / se puero, castigator censorque minorum.)
