The paradox of one time in history is that we have
taller buildings but shorter tempers,wider freeways
but narrower viewpoints.We spend more,
but we have less,we buy more, but enjoy less.
We have bigger houses and smaller families,more
conveniences,but less time. We have more degrees
but less sense, more knowledge ,but less judgment,
more experts,yet more problems, more medicine,
but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too mucj, spend too
recklessly, laugh too little,drive too fast,get too angry,
stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little,
watch TV too much and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions,but reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom and hate too ofen.
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,
buthave trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor.
We conquered outer space but not inner space.
We’ ve done langer things , but not better things.
We’ ve cleaned up the air,but polluted the soul.
We ‘ve conquered the atom ,but not our prejudice.
We write more, learn less,we plan more,
but accomplish less.We’ve learned to rush,
but not to wait. We build more computers to hold
more information,to produce more copies than ever
but we communicate less and less.
These are the times of fast foods and slow
digestion,big men and small character,
sleep profits and shallow relationships.
These are the days of two incomes but more divorce,
fancier houses,but 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’s a time when there is much in the showroom window
and nothing in the sockroom.
Remember to spend some time with your loved ones
beacause they are nt going to be around forever.
Remember to 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 warm hug to the one next to you,
because that is 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
when it comes from deep inside you.
Remember to hold hands cherish the moment
for someday that person will not be there again.
Give time to love,give time to speak
and give time to share the precious
thoughts in your mind.
Life is not measured by the number of
breaths we take,but the moments
that take our breath away.
