A Profound Insight About Our Life Today!

From EddBSmith's Channel

The Paradox of our time:

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers

Wider motorways, 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 judgement

More experts, yet more problems

More medicine, but less wellness

We drink to much, smoke to much, spend to recklessly, laugh to little, drive to fast, get to angry, stay up to late, get up to tired, read to little, watch TV to much, and pray to seldom

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values

We talk to much, love to little, and hate to 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 bigger 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

These are the days of two incomes, but more divorce

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

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 thing

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

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