The paradox of our times
The paradox of our times is that we have taller buildings, but shorter characters; wider highways, but narrower viewpoints. We have bigger houses, but smaller families; more conveniences, but less time; more experts, but even more problems; more medicines, but less wellness; more knowledge, but less wisdom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values; we talk too much and love too seldom. We have learnt how to make a living, but not a life. We write more, but read less; we have added years to life, but not life to years. We are capable to fly to the moon but have trouble to cross the street to meet the neighbour. We've split the atom, but not our prejudice.
We live in the days of higher body weight, but lower morals. We have tablets for all, for good temper, for calm and even for death. We live in a time, when technology allows you to read these facts and choose either to deliberate it or ignore it.
