Slide 1:

Paradox Of Our Times

Slide 2:

Today we have bigger houses and smaller families More conveniences , but less time

Slide 3:

We Have More degrees, but less common sense More knowledge , but less judgment

Slide 4:

We have more experts, but more problems More medicine, but less wellness

Slide 5:

And We spend too recklessly Laugh too little Drive too fast Get too angry too quickly Stay up too late Read too little Watch TV too much pray too seldom

Slide 6:

We multiply our possessions, but reduce our values We talk too much, love too little and lie too often

Slide 7:

We’ve learned how to make living, but not a life We’ve added years to life, not life to years

Slide 8:

We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints We spend more, but have less We buy more, enjoy it less We’ve been all the way to the moon and back But have trouble crossing the street to meet our neighbors. We’ve conquered outer space, But not inner space We’ve split the atom But not our prejudice

Slide 9:

We write more, learn less, ---------------------- plan more, but accomplish less we’ve learned to rush, but not to wait, we have higher incomes , but lower morals We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies But have less communications We are long on quantity, But short on quality These are the time of fast foods and slow digestion Tall men , and short character

More leisure and less fun ,,,,,more kinds of foods ,,,,, but less nutrition Two incomes ,,,,,but more divorce Fancier houses ,,,, but broken homes

Slide 11:

That’s why I propose , that as of today , you do not keep anything for a special occasion , because every day you live is a special occasion. Search for knowledge , read more , sit on your front porch and admire the view without paying attention to your needs. Spend more time with your family and friends , eat your favorite foods, and visit the places you love .

Slide 12:

Life is a chain of moments of enjoyment, not only about survival. Use your crystal goblets, do not save your best perfume, and use it every time you feel you want it.

Slide 13:

Remove from your vocabulary phrases like “ one of these days “ and “ someday” Let’s write that letter we thought of writing “ one of these days “ Let’s tell our families and friends how much we love them. Do not delay anything that adds laughter and joy to your life . Every day , every hour , and every minute is special. And you don’t know if it will be your last .

Slide 14:

If you’re too busy to take the time to send this message to someone you love , and you tell yourself you will send it “ one of these days “ You may not be here to send it “ one of these days “ believe me
