The Paradox Of Our Age - 14th Dalai Lama

This quote was added by user5695
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 crossing the street to meet our new neighbor.
