Transcript of Paradox Times

  • Paradox Times

  • Today we have bigger houses but smaller families, more amenities but less time

  • We have a higher education level and more knowledge but less common sense and competence to judge

  • We have more experts but more problems. More medicine but less health.

  • We seem unconcernedLaugh too littleGet angry too quicklyWe get up too lateRead too littleWatch too much tvAnd are less considerate

  • We multiplied our properties and estates but we reduced our values and moralsWe talk too much, love too little and lie too often.

  • We learned how to make a living but not how to live. We have years to live but cant add years to life.

  • We have higher buildings but lower tempers.We have wider streets but more narrow points of view.

    We spend more but have less. We buy more but enjoy it less.

    We went all the way to the moon and back, yet we cant cross the street to meet our neighbours.

    We have split up atoms but cant break down our prejudices.

  • We write more, learn less, plan more but finish less. We have learnt to rush but not to wait.We have higher income but lower morale.

    We build more computers to obtain more information and make more copies but to have less personal communication..

    We have more quantity than quality. These are the times of fast food and great men with little character.

  • More spare time but less fun - - more kinds of food but less good nutrition - - two incomes but more divorces - Nicer houses but broken homes -

  • I suggest we dont save anything for special occasions, instead treat every day as a special occasion.

    Look for realization, read more. Sit and enjoy the view.

    Spend more time with your family and friends, eat your favorite food and visit places you love.

  • Life is about moments of joy, not moments of survivalDrink from your finest crystal glasses, eat from your good china, dont save up your best perfume or cologne, instead use it every day.

  • Erase expressions like later, some other time and not now from your vocabulary.

    Tell your family and friends how much you love them. Dont hesitate to allow the laughter and joy into your life. Realize that every day, every hour and every minute is unique.

  • If youre too busy to send this to somebody you like and care about, just tell yourself youll send it later.I guarantee you wont send it later.
