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 judgment;
                                                         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 neighbor.
                                                       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 shot 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.
