The Good Old Days

Lucretius, On the Nature of Things 2.1166-1167 (tr. A.E. Stallings):
He rails against the present, while he has nothing but praise
For the fortunes of his father — yes, those were the good old days!

et cum tempora temporibus praesentia confert
praeteritis, laudat fortunas saepe parentis.
And when he compares times present with times
past, he often praises his father's good luck.
