The paradoxes of modern society are followings.
We have taller building but shorter temples,
We have wider freeways but narrower viewpoints,
We have spend more but have less,
We have bought more but enjoy less,
We own bigger houses but smaller families,
We have more degree but less sense,
We have more knowledge but less judgment,
We have more experts yet more problems more medicines
but less wellness.
We drink 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 T.V.too much & prey too seldom.
We have learned how to make a living but not a life . We
have 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 neighbour, We conquered outer space but not inner space. We have done larger
Larger thing but not better thing
We have cleaned up the air but polluted the soul.
We have conquered the atom but not our prejudice.
We write more but learn less. We plan more accomplish less .
We have learned to rush but not to wait.
MODERN time is a time of
Fast food & slow digestion,
Big men & small character,
Steep profits &shallow relationship
Too income but more divorces,
Fancier houses but BROKEN homes,
These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers to throw away morality.
Let us think about what we achieve and what we lost in modern society…..
