The paradox of our time in History: You are not your JOB, you do not need a job to define you.

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.

We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less.

We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees, but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgement, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch tv too much.

 We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.

 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 way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a 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 conquered 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 build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast food and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships.

These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses but broken homes.

These are the days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill.

 It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this message to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or just ignore it.

If you don't  think the world will end this weekend ??

Today when the market drops,,, will be a nice buying opportunity,  if you have hope  and buy the right  things.

Price always matters.

Good luck...

Your original post reminds me of George Carlin.  As for the world ending this weekend, I hadn't heard that.

Look at your past. Your past has determined where you are at this moment. What you do today will determine where you are tomorrow. Are you moving forward or standing still?

The true paradox of our time is that people re-post cliche' items without ever even taking the time to read and comprehend them.

The true paradox of our time is that people spew trite proverbial statements about changing one's views and belief, but with the internal belief that it's 'others' who need to change...that everything would be fine if all those truly ignorant 'other' people would realize just how right and smart 'we' are and change to fit 'our' worldview...

By the way, sassy, you remind me of a scene from "Fight Club".

Like selling because its gonna all end makes any more sense than wanting to buy just before the end to have it on your records.

That reminds me of a Jimmy Buffett song!

Come Monday It'll be aright / Come Monday I'll be holding you tight / I spent four lonely days in a brown L.A. haze / And I just want you here by my side.

Turf: brilliant post. 

"We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. "

What period of time are you comparing us to?

We have less of what? Slaves?

We enjoy less of what? Smallpox? Domestic abuse?

The "good old days" are a myth. They never existed.
