Гесио́д — первый исторически достоверный древнегреческий поэт, рапсод, представитель направления дидактического и генеалогического эпоса.
— Hesiod, Works and Days and Theogony
„I see no hope for the future of our people if they are dependent on frivolous youth of today, for certainly all youth are reckless beyond words... When I was young, we were taught to be discreet and respectful of elders, but the present youth are exceedingly disrespectful and impatient of restraint.“
This quote has been attributed to Hesiod on the internet, and even published with citation as a dubious attribution, but there are no known occurrences of it in his writings.
