~~The Paradox Of Our Life~~

We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.
We spend more, but have less.
We buy more, but enjoy less.
We have bigger houses and smaller families, more convenience, but less time.
We have more degrees, but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgement, more experts, but more problems.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom and lie too often.
We've tried to make a living, but not life.
We've added years to life, not life to years.
We've been to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor.
We've conquered outer space but not 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 prejudices.
We've learnt more, but learn less.
We've learnt to rush, but but not to wait.
We've higher incomes, but lower morals, more acquaintances, but few friends, more effort but less success.
We built more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but less communication.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion.
Tall men, abd shorter character.
Steep profits, and shallow relationships.
More kinds of food and less nutrition.

These are the days of two incomes, but more devorce, of financed houses and broken homes.

These are the days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throw - away morality, one - night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill.
It is the time when there is much in the show window and nothing in the stock room.
Indeed, it's all true.
