The Paradox of Life

Might not have formed it but i just wanted to share:
The paradox of our time in history is that 

We have taller buildings but shorter tempers
We spend more but have less
We have wider free ways but narrower viewpoints
We have bigger houses but smaller families
We have more conveniences but less time
We have more degrees but less sense
More knowledge but less judgements
More experts yet more problems
More medicines but less wellness
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get angry too easily, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much and pray too seldom. 
We have multiplied our possessions but reduced our values. 
We talk too much, love too seldom and hate too often. 
We've learned how to make a living but not a life.
We've been all the way to the moon and back yet find it hard to cross the street and meet a new neighbour
We've done larger but not better things
We've cleaned the air but polluted our soul,
We've conquered the atom but not our prejudice
We write more but learn less
We plan more but accomplish less
We've learned to rush but not wait, 
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, 
Big men with small characters
Steep profits and shallow relationships, 
Fancier houses but broken homes
These are the days of quick trips, overweight bodies and pills that do everything from cheer to quiet to kill, 
and a time when u can read this and re-evaluate your life or ignore this. 
The reality of the life we live now.
