The Paradox of Our Age

We have bigger houses but smaller families; more convenience, but less time; We have more degrees, but less sense; more knowledge, but less judgement; more experts, but more problems; more medicines, but less healthiness; We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbour. We built more computers to hold more information than ever, but have less communication; We have become long on quantity, but short on quality. These are the times of fast foods but slow digestion; Tall man but short character; Steep profits but shallow relationships. It's a time when there is much in the window, but nothing in the room.
--- His Holiness the 14th Dali Lama, Tenzin Gyatzo
