The Younger Generation

Seneca the Elder, Controversiae 1 pr. 8 (tr. M. Winterbottom):
Look at our young men: they are lazy, their intellects asleep; no-one can stay awake to take pains over a single honest pursuit. Sleep, torpor and a perseverance in evil that is more shameful than either have seized hold of their minds.

torpent ecce ingenia desidiosae iuventutis nec in unius honestae rei labore vigilatur; somnus laguorque ac somno ac languore turpior malarum rerum industria invasit animos.
