The Paradox of our Age

We have bigger houses, but smaller families;
more convieniences, but less time;
We have more degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge, but less judgement;
more experts, but more problems,
more medicines, but less healthiness;
We've been all the way to moon and back,
but we 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 less communication;
We have become long on quantity,
but short in quality.
These are the time of fast foods, but slow digestion;
Tall man but short character;
Steep profits but shallow relationships.
It's a time when there is much in the window,
but nothing in the room.
~Dalai Lama
