THINK THIS OVER

Today we have higher buildings and wider highways, but shorter temperaments and narrower points of view

We spend more, but enjoy less

We have bigger houses, but smaller families

We have more compromises, but less time

We have more knowledge, but less judgment

We have more medicines, but less health

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values

We talk too much, we love only a little, and we hate too much

We reached the moon and came back, but find trouble to cross our own street and meet our neighbor

We have conquered the outer space but not the inner space

We have high income, but lesser morals

These are times with more liberty, but less joy……

With much more food, but less nutrition

These are times of finer houses, but more broken homes

That’s why I propose that as from today you don’t keep anything for a special occasion, because every day that you live is a special occasion. Life is a chain of moments of enjoyments; it isn’t only a survival. Use your crystal goblets. Do not save your best perfume, and use it every time you feel you want it. Take out from your vocabulary phrases like “one of these days” and “someday”.
