Food For Thoughts


A Wonderful Message
by George Carlin...


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,
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 will not
 be there again.

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

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:

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

If you don't send this
to at least
8 people.....who cares?
