Paradox of Our Time
I want to share below e-mail I received today....
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.
We have more degrees but less sense,
more knowledge, but less judgment,
more experts, yet more problems,
more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly,
laugh too little,
drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired,
read too little, watch TV too much,
but pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate 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 a new neighbor.
We 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 conquered the atom, but not our prejudice.
We write more, but learn less.
We plan more, but accomplish less.
We've learned to rush, but not to wait.
We build more computers to hold more information,
to produce more copies than ever,
but we communicate less and less.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion,
big men and small character,
steep profits and shallow relationships.
Fancier houses, but broken homes.
These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway 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 showroom window and nothing in the stockroom.
A time when technology can bring this letter to you,
and a time when you can choose either to share this insight,
or to just hit delete...
!!! please send it to someone
Remember, spend some time with your loved ones,
because they are not going to be around forever.
Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe,
because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you,
because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart
and it doesn't cost a cent.
Remember, to say, 'I love you' to your partner and your loved ones,
but most of all mean it.
A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.
Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.
Give time to love,
give time to speak!
And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,
but by the moments that take our breath away.
by: George Carlin
A MOMENT TO THINK
A MINUTE TO PONDER
A HOUR TO REFLECT
YESTERDAY IS GONE
WHAT MATTER IS NOW
TOMORROW MAY NEVER COME
I just hope we spend some time to read this post and think about it...

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.&q

Very nice and think if half of the world would take a moment and remember some of the nice stuff if not all, that we should..or on a closer scale, just people in Qatar.
...is that maybe in a good life we ain't walkin' upright...

doomed to always making choices. This indeed is life's greatest paradox.

I always lie' is a paradox because if it is true it must be false.
