[MOL] Something to think about....



>> PARADOX OF OUR AGE
>>
>>We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers; wider freeways, but
>>narrower viewpoints; we spend more, but have less; we buy more, but
>>enjoy it less.
>>
>>We have bigger houses and smaller families; more conveniences, but less
>>time; we have more degrees, but less common sense; more  knowledge, but
>>less judgment; more experts, but more problems; more medicine, but less
>>wellness.
>>
>>We spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry
>>too quickly, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too  seldom, watch
>>TV too much, and pray too seldom.
>>
>>We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.  We talk too
>>much, love too seldom, and lie too often.  We've learned how to make a
>>living, but not a life; we've added years to life, not life to years
>>
>> We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing
>>the street to meet the new neighbors.  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 prejudice; we write more, but learn less; plan more, but accomplish
>>less
>>
>>We've learned to rush, but not to wait; we have higher incomes, but lower
>>morals; more food, but less appeasement; more acquaintances, but fewer
>>friends; more effort, but less success.
>>
>>We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies
>>than ever, but have less communication; we've become long on quantity,
>>but short on quality.
>>
>>These are the times of fast food and slow digestion; tall men and short
>>character; steep profits and shallow relationships.
>>
>>These are the times of world peace, but domestic warfare; more leisure,
>>and less fun; more kinds of food, but less nutrition.
>>
>>These are the days of two incomes, but more divorce; of fancier houses,
>>but broken homes.
>>
>>These are 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 a time when there is much in the show window, and nothing in the
>>stockroom.
>>
>>hink about it...read it again.....
