Transcript

  • 1. Paradox of Our Times
  • 2. Today, we have bigger houses and smaller families;
  • 3. More conveniences, but less time;
  • 4. We have more degrees, but less common sense;
  • 5. More knowledge, but less judgment.
  • 6. We have more experts, but more problems; more medicine, but less wellness.
  • 7. We spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast,
  • 8. get to angry too quickly, stay up too late, get up too tired,
  • 9. Read too little, watch TV too often, and pray too seldom.
  • 10. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
  • 11. We talk too much, love too little and lie too often.
  • 12. We've learned how to make a living, but not a life;
  • 13. We've added years to life, not life to years.
  • 14. We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers;
  • 15. Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.
  • 16. We spend more, but have less; we buy more, but enjoy it less. x
  • 17. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor.
  • 18. We've conquered outer space, but not inner space.
  • 19. We've split the atom, but not our prejudice;
  • 20. We write more, but learn less; plan more, but accomplish less.
  • 21. We've learned to rush, but not to wait;
  • 22. We have higher incomes, but lower morals.
  • 23. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies, but have less communication.
  • 24. We are long on quantity, but short on quality.
  • 25. These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion; tall men and short character; steep profits and shallow relationships.
  • 26. More leisure and less fun; More kinds of food, but less nutrition;
  • 27. Two incomes, but more divorce; Fancier houses, but broken homes.
  • 28. This is the paradox of our times today.
  • 29. That's why I propose, that as of today, you do not keep anything for a special occasion, because every day that you live is a special occasion.
  • 30.   Search for knowledge, read more, sit on your front porch and admire the view without paying attention to your needs.
  • 31. Spend more time with your family and friends, eat your favorite foods, and visit the places you love.
  • 32. Life is a chain of moment of enjoyment, not only about survival.
  • 33. Use your crystal goblets. Do not save your best perfume, and use it every time you feel you want it.
  • 34.   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".
  • 35. Let's tell our families and friends how much we love them.
  • 36. 對於能給你的生命增添快樂的事情,不要押後拖延。 Do not delay anything that adds laughter and joy to your life.
  • 37. Every day, every hour, and every minute is special.  And you don't know if it will be your last.
  • 38. If you’re too busy to take the time to send this message to someone you care, and you tell yourself you will send it “one of these days“,  just think … “one of these days“ you may not be here to send it!
  • 39. Thank you for watching Edition 2010-10-31 by Herbert K. Lau
