The Paradox of Our Age

The 14th Dalia Lamah

His Holiness The 14th Dalia Lamah

We have bigger houses but smaller families; more convenience, but less time.

We have more degrees but less sense; more knowledge, but less judgement; 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 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.

– His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
