The Paradox of Our Age - Dalai Lama

--posting just for myself. :)--



[The Paradox of Our Age]

We have bigger houses, but smaller families: more conveniences, but less time;
We have more degrees, but less sense: more knowledge, but less judgements;
more experts, but more problems;
more medicines, but less healthiness.

We've been all the way to the moon and back,
but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbour.

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.

There are times of fast foods, but slow digestion;
tall man, but short character;
steep profits, but shallow relationships.

It is a time when there is much in window, but nothing in the room.



-His Holiness the XIVth Dalai Lama-
