Some Of The Paradoxes In Life
In this life, we have bigger houses for everything we want and yet we have smaller families. Many people have multiple degrees, but few of them have common sense. We have more experts in each field, but more problems to fix. More
medicine is produced in quantities, but less wellness is being experienced. We’ve multiplied our possessions over and over again,
but reduced our values to something lower than the carpet under our feet.
We’ve learned how to make a living due to a job,but we haven't learned how to live a
life.There are taller buildings in the cities, but our shorter tempers get the better of us;
Wider freeways for movement, but narrower viewpoints and opinions.
Some people have been all the way to the moon and back, but yet most of us have trouble crossing the street to meet our neighbors. We’ve conquered outer space but not inner space.
We’ve split the atom thanks to Ernest Rutherford ,but not our prejudice due to narrow mindedness. We’ve learned to rush the things we do, but not to wait for the things we need. We have higher incomes, but lower morals in achieving the income. Fancier houses are built each day, but broken homes still exist.
Doesn't this make you think a little more about how you're living your life?
