THE PARADOX OF OUR AGE

We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers;
Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints;
We spend more, but have less;
We buy more, but enjoy it less.
We have bigger houses, but smaller families;

More conveniences, but less time;
We have more degrees, but less sense;
More knowledge, but less judgement;
More experts, but more problems;
More medicine, but less wellness.
We spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry too quickly,
Stay up too late, get up too tired, read too seldom, 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 lie too often.
Weve learned how to make a living, but not a life;
Weve added years to life, not life to years.
Weve conquered outer space, but not inner space;
Its time when there is much in the show window, and nothing in the stock room.    - George Carlin, Comedian -   continue reading the entire writeup

R. M. Sullivan:
Stars and atoms have no size
They only vary in men’s eyes.
Men and instruments will blunder,
Calculating things of wonder.
A seed is just as huge a world
As any ball the sun has hurled.
Stars are quite as picayune
As any splinter of the moon.
Time is but a vague device;
Space can never be precise;
Stars and atoms have a girth,
Small as zero, ten times Earth.
There is by God’s swift reckoning
A universe in everything.
- in "Measurement".



TO ME EVERY HOUR OF LIGHT AND DARK IS A MIRACLE. EVERY CUBIC INCH OF SPACE IS A MIRACLE.
