Petronius Arbiter Quote

The Satyricon of Petronius Arbiter (Forgotten Books) “We trained very hard… But it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams, we would be reorganized.  I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing:  And a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization.”
Petronius Arbiter, 66 AD
