Great Expressions

The Paradox of Our Time in History is That..Holy Dalai Lama

Still I am not that much intellectual to write big-big words but yes, now I am enough mature to understand the meaning of power full thoughts shared by others.  here I am sharing one poem written by Holi Dalai Lama with powerful expressions.

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.We have bigger houses and smaller families;more conveniences,but less time;we have more degrees, but less sense;more knowledge,but less judgement;more experts, but less solutions; more medicine,but less wellnessWe have multiplied possessions,but reduced out 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 added years to life, not life to years.We’ve been all the way to the moon and back,but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor.We’ve conquered outer space, but not inner space;we’ve cleaned up the air,but polluted the soul;we’ve split the atom,but not our prejudice.We have higher incomes, but lower morals;we’ve become long on quantity,but short on qualityThese are times of 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.
These are days of two incomes,but more divorce;of fancier houses,but broken homes.It is a time when there is much in the show windowand nothing in the stockroom.This is the time when technology can bringthis letter to you.

This is the time when you have everything but still you feel empty handed.
