I find this refreshing and enlightening and ultimately sad all at the same time.  I hope it brings you something to think about.

We have bigger houses, but smaller families
more conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge, but less judgments;
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 new neighbor.
We build 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 man, but short character;
steep profits, but shallow relationship.
It is a time when there is much in the window,
but nothing in the room.
~H.H. The XIVth Dalai Lama
