I like reading and keeping wise quotes like some of you out there. Here's one I came across today:

"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 meet the new neighbour. We built more computers to hold more information to produce more copies than ever, but have less real communication; We have become long on quantity, but short on quality. These are times of fast foods but slow digestion; Tall men but short characters; Steep profits but shallow relationships. It's a time when there is much in the window, but nothing in the room."
Dalai Lama

How true.

Hi :)

Fantastic quote!

Everything that is said in this quote is abslutely true.

We have more entertainment but less happiness; we have more money but do less charity; we have plenty amidst stark poverty; we have better medicines but more sickness :) :) :)

Thanks for sharing this great quote which will make everyone sit up and think.

Have a bright and beautiful day :)
