How times changed
The famous actor Arnold Schwarzenegger posted a picture of him sleeping in the street under his famous bronze statue and wrote sadly (How times changed).
The reason he wrote the sentence was not only because he was old but because when the governor of California opened the hotel with the statue in front of him. The hotel officials told Arnold: ´At any time you can come and have a room reserved in your name´. When Arnold left judgment and went to the hotel the administration refused to give him a room arguing that the hotel was fully booked.
He brought a cover and slept under the statue and asked people to imagine it. He wants to convey a message that when he was in a position they were praising him and when he lost this position they forgot and did not fulfill their promise to him. Yes times have changed. Do not trust your position or your owner or your power or your intelligence. All of this will not last.
