The Paradox Of Our Age

I have no idea who wrote this, but sadly how true:

We have bigger houses
   but 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 medicines
   but less healthiness.

We’ve been all the way to the moon and back,
   but have trouble in crossing the street to meet our new neighbour.
We built more computers to hold more copies than ever,
   but have less real communication;
We have become long on quantity,
   but short on quality.
These are times of fast foods
   but slow digestion;
Tall men
   but short characters;
Steep profits
   but shallow relationships.
It’s a time when there is much in the window
   but nothing in the room.
