View Full Version : Food for Thought"

We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers; wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less; buy more, but enjoy it less.

We have bigger houses and 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 medicine, but less wellness.

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

We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor.

We've multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values,
talked too much, loved too seldom and "lied" too often.
We've learned how to make a living, but not a life; added years to life, not life to years.

We've conquered outer space, but not inner space; done
larger things, not better things. We've cleaned up the air,
but polluted the soul; split the atom, but not our prejudice.
We write more, but learn less; plan more, but accomplish

We've learned to rush, but not to wait; we have higher incomes, but lower morals; more food but less appeasement; more acquaintances, fewer friends; more effort, less success.

We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but have less communication; become long on quantity, but short on quality.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion; tall men, and short character; steep profits, and shallow relationships.

These are the times of more leisure and less fun; more kinds of food, but less nutrition.

These are the days of two incomes, but more divorce;
fancier houses, but broken homes.

These are the days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one-night stands, overweight bodies, pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill.

It is a time when there is much in the show window and nothing in the storeroom.

. . . and yet the choice is ours.

So true! jazakAllah khair.

We have more degrees, but less sense; more knowledge, but less judgment;more experts, but more problems; more medicine, but less wellness.
