Paradox of Life (5-Feb-2011)

09 Aug

Someone wrote this and I’d like to share it with you:
“The paradox of our time in history is that:
we have taller buildings, but shorter tempers;

wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints;

we spend more, but have less;

we buy more, but enjoy it less.

we have bigger houses, but smaller families;

more conveniences, but less time;

we have more degrees, but less sense;

more knowledge, but less judgment;

more experts, but more problems;

more medicine, but less wellness;

we have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values;

we talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

we’ve learned to make a living but not a life;

we’ve added years to life, but not life to years;

we’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor;

we’ve conquered outer space, but not inner space;

we’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul;

we’ve split the atom, but not our prejudice;

we have higher incomes, but lower morals;

we’ve become long on quantity, but short on quality;

these are the times of tall men and short character;

steep profits and shallow relationships;

these are the times of world peace, but domestic warfare;

more leisure, but less fun;

more kinds of food, but less nutrition.

these are the days of two incomes, but more divorce;

of fancier houses, but broken homes.”
