Thought you might enjoy this. ~~Julie
The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings, but
shorter tempers; wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints; we spend
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
more experts, but more problems; more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too
fast, get too angry too quickly, stay up too late, get up too tired,
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 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
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; we plan more, but accomplish less.
We've learned to rush, but not to wait; we have higher incomes, but
morals. We have more food, but less appeasement. We build more
to hold more information to produce more copies than ever, but have
communication; We've become long on quantity, but short on quality.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion; tall men, and
character; steep profits and shallow realtionships. These are the times
of world peace, but domestic warfare; more leisure, but less fun; more
of food, but less nutrition.
These are the days of two incomes, but more divorce; of fancier houses,
These are the days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throw away
morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do
cheer,to quiet,to kill.
It is a time when there is much in the show window and nothing in the
stockroom; a time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a
time when you can choose either to make a difference, or simply to hit
