Bragging that today is not yesterday

Though today is always today and the moment is always modern, we are the only men in all history who fall back upon bragging about the mere fact that today is not yesterday. I fear that some in the future will explain it by saying that we had precious little else to brag about.
G.K. Chesterton, All I Survey
The further away we move from Chesterton in time, the more prescient he is revealed to be.
