  13. 13.  God works – Man must also work. He is created in the image and likeness of God.
  14. 14.  Work is love made visible. And if you cant work with love but only with distaste, it is better to leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of the people who work with joy.

  26. 26. (Dr. Bob Moorehead) The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings, but shorter tempers; wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints; we spend more, but have less; we buy more, but enjoy it less.
  27. 27.  We have bigger houses and smaller families; more conveniences, but less time; we have more degrees, but less sense; more knowledge, but less judgment; more experts, but more problems; more medicine, but less wellness.
  28. 28.  We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get angry too quickly, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too seldom, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
  29. 29.  We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. Weve learned how to make a living, but not a life; weve added years to life, not life to years.
  30. 30.  Weve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor. Weve conquered outer space, but not inner space; weve done larger things, but not better things.
  31. 31.  Weve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul; weve split the atom, but not our prejudice.
  32. 32.  We write more, but learn less; we plan more, but accomplish less. Weve learned to rush, but not to wait; we have higher incomes, but lower morals; we have more food, but less appeasement; we build more computers to hold more information to produce more copies than ever, but have less communication; weve become long on quantity, but short on quality.
  33. 33.  These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion; tall men, and short character; steep profits, and shallow relationships. These are the times of world peace, but domestic warfare; more leisure, but less fun; more kinds of food, but less nutrition.
  34. 34.  These are days of two incomes, but more divorce; of fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throw away morality, one-night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer to quiet to kill.
