... we have taller buildings, but shorter tempers
... wider freeways .. but narrower viewpoints ...
... we sped more .. but have less ...
.. we buy more .. but enjoy less ..
.. we have bigger houses and smaller families ..
more convenience .. but less time ..
.. we have more degrees .. but less common sense ,,
more knowledge .. but less judgment ..
More experts .. but more problems ..
More medicine.. but less wellness ..
we drink too much, smoke too much, pend more recklessly, laugh too little..
drive too fast, get too angry .. stay up late, get up too tired ..
read too seldom, watch t.v too much ..
discuss too seldom, pray a little
we have multiplied our possessions ...
but reduce our values ..
we talk too much, love a little...
and lie often ..
we've learned how 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 we have trouble crossing the street,
to meet the ne neighbor ..
we've conquered outer space..
but not inner space ..
we've done larger things ..
but not bigger things ..
we've cleaned the air .. but polluted the soul .. .
we've split the atom .. but not our prejudice..
we wrote more .. but learn less ..
we plan more.. but accomplish less ..
we've learned to rush .. but not to wait ..
we have higher incomes .. but lower morals ..
we have more food .. but less appeasement:
more acquaintances.. but fewer friends ..
more effort .. but less success ..
we built more computers to hold more information,
to produce more copies than ever ..
but have less communication ..
we've been long on quantity ..
but short on quality ..
these are the times of fast food and slow digestion :
tall men and short character ..
steep profits and shallow relationships ..
these are times of world peace..
but domestic warfare ..
more leisure .. and less fun ..
more kinds of food .. but less nutrition ..
these are days of two incomes .. but more divorce;
of financier houses .. but broken homes ..
these are the days of quick trips,
disposable diapers, throwaway morality,
one night stands, overweight bodies,
and pills that do everything ..
from cheer .. to quiet .. to kill ..
it is a time when there is
much in the show window ..
and nothing in the stockroom.
remember, spend sometime
with your loved ones,
because they are not going to be around
remember, say a kind word to
someone who looks up to you in awe..
because that little person soon
will grow up and leave your side .
remember to give a warm hug
to the one next to you ,
because that's the only treasure
you can give with your heart,
and it doesn't cost a cent!
remember to say i love you!
to your partner and your loved ones,
but most of all, mean it!
a kiss and an embrace will mend hurt
when it comes from deep inside you ..
remember to hold hands,
and cherish the moment ..
give time to love,
give time to speak, and give time to share the precious
thoughts in your mind ..
indeed it's all true .
think about it .. read this again ..
this is the PARADOX OF OUR AGE ..
- Title: .+ paradox of our age +.

.. ehh .. I think this one could teach us some lifetime lessons .. =]
*really .. these are the things that are painfully awfully true, but we do it often .. and that's the bitter sweet truth* @_@
