Paradox of times inspired

The paradox of our time in history is that 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 conveniences, but less time.
Fancier houses, but broken homes.
More degrees but less sense,
More knowledge, but less judgment.
More experts, yet more problems.
More medicine, but less wellness.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry,
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

Stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much.

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.

We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul.
We write more, but learn less.
We plan more, but accomplish less.
We've learned to rush, but not to wait.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion,
Big men and small character,
Steep profits and shallow relationships.
These are days of quick trips

Spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.
To give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart
To hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
