"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. We've been all the way to the moon and back but have trouble crossing the street to meet the 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 fast times of fast foods but slow digestion. Tall man but short character. Steep profits but shallow relationships. It is a time where there is much in the window but nothing in the room."
Tenzin Gyatso (1935- ), Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader, 14th Dalai Lama
