"An Anonymous Thought"

The paradox of this time in history is that:

We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers.
Wider freeways, but more narrow viewpoints.
We spend more, but we have less.
We buy more, but enjoy less.
We have Degrees, but less common sense.
More knowledge, but less judgement.
More experts, but more problems.
More medicine, but less wellness.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced lives values.
We talk too much, but listen less often.
We have learned how to make a living, but not a life.
We have added years to life, but not life to years.
We have been all the way to the moon and back, but we hardly know our neighbours.
We have conquered outer space, but not inner space.
We have split the atom, but not our prejudice.
We have higher incomes, but lower morals.
We have become long on quantity, but short on quality.
These are the times of tall men, and short shadowy character.
Times of steep profits, and shallow relationships.
These are times of delicate world peace, and domestic warfare.
Times of more leisure, but less fun.
More kinds of food, but more hungry people.
The days of two incomes, but more divorce.
Days of fancier houses, but more broken homes.
It is a time when there is much in the showroom window, but very little in the storeroom.

And All Of This Was Created By Thought Perhaps It Is Time To Change The Way We Think!
