paradox of our times

June 4, 2008 8:43am CST
We have bigger houses,but smaller familes;more conveniences,but less time;we have more degress,but less common sense;more knowledge,but less judgment;more experts,but more problems;more medcine, but less wellness. We spend too recklessly,laugh too little, drive too fast,get to angry too quickly,stay up too late,get up too tired,read too little,watch TV too often,and pary too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions,but reduced our values.We talked too much,love too little and lie too often. We've learned to how to make a living,but not a life;we've added years to life,but not life to years. We have taller budlings,but shorter tempers;wider freeways,but narrower viewpoints,We spend too more,but have less;we buy more,but enjoy it less. We've been all the 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 spilt the atom,but not our prejudice;we write more,but learn less;plan more,but accomplish less. We learned to rush,but not to wait;we have higher s,but lower morals.We build more computers to hold more imformation,to produce more copies,but have less communication.We are long on quantity,but short on quilty. These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion;tall men and shot character;steesp profits and shallow relationship.More leisure and less fun;more kinds of food,but less nutrition;two incomes,but more divorces;fancier houses,but broken homes.
