Discovery of Happiness
cannot change the situation like channels of TV. Happiness takes patience. Is that so?
God please grant me the patience I lack. (And I want it now!)
George Collin the famous comedian who died in July 2008, has summarized the
impact of modern life style brilliantly as follows:
The paradox of our time in history is that we spend more, but have less;
we buy more, but enjoy less.
We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less
We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less
judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too
little , drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read
too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to
life not life to years.
We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing
the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not
inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things
We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul.
We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice.
We write more, but learn less.
We plan more, but accomplish less.
We've learned to rush, but not to wait.
We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more
copies than ever, but we communicate less and less
Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to
be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe,
because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only
treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent. Remember, to say, ' I love
you ' to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace
will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you. Remember to hold hands and
cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.
Life is not me asure d by the numbe r of bre aths we take but by the mome nts
that take our bre ath away.
