The paradox of our time in history is that we have
taller buildings but shorter tempers, 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

We've added years to life, not life to years. We
have 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,
throw away 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

Remember, 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 does not cost a

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 will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak. and give
time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.


Life is not measured by the number of breaths we
take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
