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 enjoy less.
We have bigger houses and smaller families.
We have more knowledge, but less judgment.
more experts, yet more problems.
more medicine, but less wellness.

We stay up too late, get up too tired.
read too little, watch TV too much, and pray seldom. 

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We love 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 to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street.
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 write more, but learn less.
We plan more, but accomplish less.
We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait.
We build computers to hold more information, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion.
big men and small character.
These are the days of two incomes, but more divorce and broken homes.


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, 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, A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.

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.
