PARADOX OF OUR TIME

- 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 and smaller families; more conveniences, 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 spend too recklessly - laugh too little, drive too fast and get angry too quickly; stay up too late, get up too tired, read too seldom; watch too much TV and pray too seldom.
- We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, listen too little, love too seldom and lie too often.
- We've learned how to make a living, but not a life; we've added years to life, 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 done larger things, but not better things; we've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul; we've split the atom, but not our prejudice; we write more, but learn less; plan more, but accomplish less.
- We've learned to rush, but not to wait; we have higher incomes, but lower morals; more food, but less appeasement; more acquaintances, but fewer friends; more effort, but less success.
- We build more computers to hold more information - to produce more copies than ever, but have less communication; we've become long on quantity, but short on quality.
- These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion; tall men and short character; steep profits and shallow relationships.
- These are the 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 and more divorce;  fancier houses and broken homes.
- These are 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.
- Indeed it's all true.
- Think about it...read it again.
