Words of His Holiness, the XIVth Dalai Lama
“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 medicines, but less healthiness.
We have been all the way to the moon and back, but we have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor.
We have more computers to hold more information and we produce more copies than ever, but less 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.”
