  The paradox(似是而非的论点) of our time in history is that we have taller buildings, but shoter tempers; wider freeways,but narrower viewpoints; we spend more, but have less, we buy more but enjoy it less. We have bigger houses and 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 medicine, but less wellness.We drink too much, speed too recklessly, lough too little, drive too fast, get too angry too quickly, stay up too late, get up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pay too seldom.We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often, 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 moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor; We’ve conquered outer space, but not inner space; We’ve done larger things, but not better things.We’ve been all the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor; We’ve 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 split 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 have higher incomes, but lower morals.

  WHERE ARE WE HEADING? 我们将走向何方?

  The paradox(似是而非的论点) of our time in history is that we have taller buildings, but shoter tempers; wider freeways,but narrower viewpoints; we spend more, but have less, we buy more but enjoy it less.

  我们这个时代在历史上总是似是而非,我们拥有更高的建筑,但是有更火爆的脾气,我们拥有更宽阔的高速公路,却有更狭隘的观点;我们花费的更多,收获得却更少,我们购买得更多,享受得却更少。

  We have bigger houses and 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 medicine, but less wellness.

  我们的房子越来越大,家庭却越来越小;便利越来越多,时间却越来越不够用,我们拥有的学位越来越多,智慧却越来越贫乏;知识越来越多,判断力却越来越差;专家越来越多,问题也越来越多;药物越来越多,健康却越来越少。

  We drink too much, speed too recklessly, lough too little, drive too fast, get too angry too quickly, stay up too late, get up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pay too seldom.

  我们喝得太多,花钱大手大脚,笑得太少,开车太快,易怒,熬夜,懒床,书读得越来越少,电视看得越来越多,却很少向上帝祈祷。

  We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often, We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life; We’ve added years to life, not life to years.
