When the wife of George Carlin died, Carlin, known for wit and satirist 70-80's, wrote this incredibly expressive article, it is today more important than ever ...
"The paradox of our time is that we have a high structure, but a low tolerance, wide highways, but the narrow views.
Spend more, but have less, we buy more, but less than pleased.
We have bigger houses and smaller families, better amenities, but less time.
We have the best education, but less than the mind, the best knowledge, but worse than assess the situation, we have more experts, but more problems, the best medicine, but worse health.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, we go too fast, get angry too easily, we go to bed too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. Increased their claims, but reduced value.
Talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. Know how to survive, but do not know how to live. Add years to human life, but do not add life to years.
Reached the moon and back, but barely cross the street and get acquainted with the new neighbor.
Conquer outer space, but not the soul.
To do more, but not better things.
Clear the air, but pollute the soul.
Subjugated the atom, but not our prejudice.
We write more, but learn less.
We plan more, but achieve less.
Learned to rush, but not to wait.
Create new computers that store more information and spew streams of copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.
It is a time of fast food and poor digestion, big men and small shower, a quick profit and difficult relationships.
While growth in household income and the growth in the number of divorces, beautiful homes and destroyed the domestic hearth.
Time short distances, disposable diapers, disposable morality, one-night; overweight and pills that do everything: excite us, tell us not to kill each one of us.
Time to fill empty storefronts and warehouses.
A time when technology can get this letter to you, at the same time allow you to share it or just press «Delete».
Remember, devote more time to those you love, because they are not with you forever.
Remember the hot press and a loved one to yourself, because that is the only treasure that can give from the heart, and it does not cost a penny.
Memorize and say "I love you" to your loved ones, but first really feel it.
Kiss and hug can fix any trouble when they go from the heart.
Remember and hold hands and appreciate the moments when you are together, because once that person will not be there for you.
Take time to love, take the time to communicate and take the time to be able to share all that you have to say.
Because life is not measured by the number of breaths, but the moments that take your breath away! "
