The paradox of our time 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 and smaller families; more conveniences, but less time; we have more degrees, but less sense; more knowledge, but less judgement; 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 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 we have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor; we've conquered outer space, but no 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. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom.
A time when we have choices, choices, choices, like your choice to help make a difference, or your choice to just look the other way...
