– The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings, but shorter tempers; wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints; We spend more, but get less; We cry 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 spend recklessly, laugh too little, Drive too fast, get angry too quickly, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
– We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We have learnt how to make a living, but not a life; We have added years to life, not life to years.
– We have been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor. We have conquered other or outer space, but not inner space ; We have done larger things, but not better things.
– We have cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul; We have split the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less; We plan more , but accomplish less.
– We have learnt to rush, but not to wait; We have higher incomes, but lower morals.
– We build more computers to hold more information to produce more copies than ever, but have less communication ; We have become long on quantity, but short on quality.
