Problems These Days


The paradox of our time in history is that we have tall but short buildings, wide Freeways, but with little ideas. We spend a lot, but we have a little, we buy a lot, but we enjoy a little

We have big houses and small families, a lot of simple things, but little time. We have many degrees but a little understanding, a lot of knowledge, but a little judgment, a lot of experts, but there are a lot of problems, a lot of medicine, but a little health.

We drink a lot, we smoke a lot, we abuse a lot, we laugh a little, we drive a lot, we get angry, we stay up late, we wake up very tired, we read a lot, we watch a lot of TV and we pray a lot.

We have increased our assets, but reduced our prices. We talk a lot, we love very rarely, and we hate a lot.

We have learned how to make a living, but not health. We have added years to life and not life to years. We had been to the moon and back, but we had trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered the outer space but not the inner space. We have done great things, but not better things.


We cleansed the air, but we defiled the soul. We have conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write a lot, but learn a little. We plan a lot, but we accomplish little. We have learned to rush, but not to wait. We built more computers to handle more information, to produce more copies than before, but we communicate less and less.

These are times of fast food and slow digestion, big men and small grains, excessive profits and shallow relationships. These are two days of salary but more divorce, houses of lovers, but homes are different. These are days of fast travel, disposable diapers, disposable habits, overnight, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from fun, to peace, to killing. It is a time when there is more in the showroom window and there is nothing in the cell. The moment when technology can bring this book to you, and the time when you can choose to share this insight, or just knock …

Remember; spend time with the people you love, because they will not be there forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone who is looking up to you in fear, because that little fellow will grow up to leave your side.

Remember, a warm kiss from someone close to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a penny.


Remember, saying, ‘I love you’ to your partner and loved ones, but above all it means. A hug and a hug will make up for any hurt that may come your way.

Remember to shake hands and thank for a moment one day that person will never be there again.

Give time to love, give time to talk! And allow time for sharing precious thoughts in your mind.

Life is not measured by the amount of breath we take, but by the time it takes away our breath.
