Management quote from 210 BC

Read it on a parchment in some office:



“Nos instructus ferreus. tamen is videor ut sulum vicis nos erant orsa effingo sursum in teams nos would exsisto novus norma. Ego eram disco laxus in vita ut nos tendo condeco ullus novus locus per novus norma; quod a mirus ratio is can exsisto pro partum illusion of progressio dum exhibitio turbatio non efficens , quod demoralio.”

“We trained 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, 210 B.C.

(Hoax of course, but still fun)
