  • #30
    “The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but
    shorter tempers, wider Freeways, 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 judgment, more experts, yet more
    problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

    We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little,
    drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too
    little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our
    possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and
    hate too 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 larger 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, to 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 cent.

    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 might
    not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to
    share the precious thoughts in your mind.”
    Bob Moorehead
