We have bigger houses but smaller families;
more conveniences, but less time.

We have more degrees but less sense;
more knowledge but less judgment;
more experts, but more problems;
more medicines but less healthiness.

We’ve been all the way to the moon and back,
but have trouble in crossing the street to meet our new neighbour.

We built more computers to hold more copies than ever,
But have less real communication;

We have become long on quantity,
but short on quality.

These are 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.

              -- The X IVth Dalai Lama

There's much on the mind, but little in the heart.

A paradox is merely a wedge into reality's fractures
