“We have bigger houses,but smaller families;
more conveniences,but less time
We have more degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge,but less judgments;
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 quantity.
These 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 the window,
but nothing in the room.”—The Paradox of Our Age: The Dalai Lama (via heartofabeliever)
