“The idiot who praises, with enthusiastic tone,
All centuries but this and every country but his own.”

—W.S.Gilbert, The Lord High Executioner’s Song

[Well, the past century hasn't exactly been anything to be enthusiastic about, but even then there is a truth to the statement. But it's the last part of the sentence I find highly relevant in many contexts.]
