GEORGE CARLIN WRITES.......
======================



(George Carlin is a comedian of the late 70's and 80's, and he wrote this eloquent subject/topic after his wife died which i would like to share to those who come across and read my blogspot)


Quote:

"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 we have less, we buy more, but enjoy 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, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.


We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too reclessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, gets too angry, 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 added years to life but not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things.


We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learn to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

There are times of fast foods and slow digestions, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorces, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are the days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throw awy morality, one night stands, overwieght bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you,a nd a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete.

Remember, spend more time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treaure you can give and it doesnt cost a cent.

Remember to say "I Love You" to your partner and your love ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you. Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak,and give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.


Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that takes our breath away."
