"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 judgment. More experts, but more problems. More medicines, but less healthiness. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, But we have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor. We have 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 foods, but slow digestion. Tall men, with short character. Steep profits, but shallow relationships. It’s a time when there is much in the window, but nothing in the room."

— The 14th Dalai Lama
