Today we have bigger houses yet smaller families
More convenience, but less time
We have more degrees, but less common sense
More knowledge, but less judgment
We have more experts, but more problems
More medicine, but less good health
We spend too recklessly
Laugh too little
Drive too fast
Get too angry too quickly
Stay up too late
Read too little
Watch TV too much
And are less considerate
We have multiplied our possessions, but have reduced our values
We talk too much, love too little and lie too often
We have learned how to make a living, but not a life
We have added years to life, but not life to years
We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers
Wider roads, but narrower viewpoints
We spend more, but have less
We buy more, yet enjoy it less
We have been all the way to the moon and back
But have trouble crossing the road to meet our neighbours.
We’ve conquered our outer space, But not our inner space
We’ve split the atom
But not our prejudice
We write more, learn less, ---------------------- plan more, but accomplish less
We have learned to rush, but not to wait,
We have higher incomes , but lower morals
We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies
But have less personal communication
We are long on quantity,
But less in quality
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion
Tall men and short character
More leisure but less fun - more kinds of food - but less nutrition
Two incomes - but more divorce
nicer houses - but broken homes
That is why I propose , that as of today , you do not keep anything for special occasions , because every day you live is a special occasion.
Search for knowledge, read more.
Sit and admire the view without paying attention to your needs.
Spend more time with your family and friends ,
eat your favorite food and visit the places you love .
Life is moments of enjoyment and not just about surviving.
Drink from the finest crystal glass.
Do not save your best perfume or aftershave but use it every day.
Remove phrases like “ one of these days “ ,“ someday” and “not now” from your vocabulary
Write that letter you thought of writing “ one of these days “
Let’s tell our families and friends how much we love them.
Do not delay anything that adds laughter and joy to your life .
Every day , every hour , and every minute is special.
As you do not know if they will be your last .
If you are too busy to take the time to make that call or write that letter to
someone you love or care about and instead tell yourself that you will do it
“ one of these days “
"One of these days"
You won't be here to send it
