Golden Age

Those who compare the age in which their lot has fallen with a golden age which exists only in imagination, may talk of degeneracy and decay; but no man who is correctly informed as to the past, will be disposed to take a morose or desponding view of the present.

-- Thomas Macaulay (1800-1859), British poet, historian, and Whig politician, History of England (1849-1861), Volume 1, Chapter 1
