The Paradox of Our Age

We have bigger houses but smaller families;
More conveniences, 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 the moon and back,
but have trouble crossing the street to greet the new neighbour.

We built 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 quality.

These are times 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.

His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Llama
