    @We have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wide free ways but narrow points.
    @We spend more, but have less. We buy more but we have less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more convenience but lesser time.
    @We have more degrees but less senses, 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 have been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a neighbor.
    @We have conquered outer space but not inner space.
    @We have done larger things, but not better things.
    @We have cleared 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 but accomplish less.
    @We have learned to rush but not to wait.
    @We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever. But to communicate less and less.
    @There are times to fast foods and slow digestion, big men and and small character.
    @Steep profits and shallow relationships.
    @There are the days of two incomes but less divorce, fancier houses but broken homes.
    @There are days of quick trips, disposable diapers throw away morality, one night stands.
    @Overweight bodies and pills that do everything from cheer, to quit killing.
    @It is a time when there is much in the show-room window and nothing in the stock room.
