Paradox Of Our Times

Tuesday, January 16, 2007

Today we have bigger houses and smaller families
More conveniences , but less time

We Have More degrees, but less common sense
More knowledge , but less judgment

We have more experts, but more problems
More medicine, but less wellness

We spend too recklessly
Laugh too little
Drive too fast
Get too angry too quickly
Stay up too late
Read too little
Watch TV too much
And pray too seldom

We multiply our possessions, but reduce our values
We talk too much, love too little and lie too often

We’ve learned how to make living, but not a life
We’ve added years to life, not life to years

We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers
Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints

We spend more, but have less
We buy more, enjoy it less

We’ve been all the way to the moon and back
But have trouble crossing the street to meet our neighbors.

We’ve conquered outer space,
But not inner space

We’ve split the atom
But not our prejudice

We write more, learn less, plan more, but accomplish less
we’ve learned to rush, but not to wait,
we have higher incomes , but lower morals

We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies
But have less communications

We are long on quantity,
But short on quality

These are the time of fast foods and slow digestion
Tall men , and short character

More leisure and less fun, more kinds of foods, but less nutrition
Two incomes, but more divorce
Fancier houses, but broken homes
