The Paradox of Our Time


Back to Articles Home

We have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider highways, but narrower viewpoints.
We spend more, but 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 common sense, more knowledge, but less wisdom, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine,
but less health.

We 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 listen too seldom, talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

These are days of quick trips, disposable everythings, throwaway morality, and one night stands,

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to our years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the road to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men but small character,
steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes.

Remember to spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.

Remember to say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person will soon grow up and leave your side.

Remember, to give a 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.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there anymore.

Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
