The Dalai Lama on ‘The Paradox of Our Age’

“We have bigger houses, but smaller families;

More conveniences, 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;

Been all the way to the moon and back,

But have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor.

We built more computers to hold more information,

to produce more copies than ever,

but have less communication.

We have become long on quantity,

but short on quality.

These are times of fast food

but slow digestion;

Tall man, but short character;

Steep profits, but shallow relationships.

It is a time when there is much in the

window, but nothing in the room.”

— The Dalai Lama
