George Carlin's inspirational insights

I read SOMEONE'S blog (Tze's actually), and saw this beautiful message. Since he doesn't really bother about views/hits/traffic/blog promotion, I shall be selfish then :P

Sorry for not updating. I'm usually very regular, but I don't have a digital camera and often refrain from taking pictures with my phone. So, the waiting time of collecting pictures from other sources takes up quite some time. WEEKS for some lazy people to just PLUG their cameras inside their computer and TRANSFER it and SEND it to me.


" The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrow 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 tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.

We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We've learnt 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 neighbour.

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 foods 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 more 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 letter to you, and in a time when you can choose to either share this insight, or to just hit delete.

Remember, spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.

Remember to say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little someone soon will grow up and leave your side.

Remember to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember to say 'I love you' to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all, mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside you.

Remember to hold the hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak, and give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

George Carlin "

AAAhhhhh. Just makes me feel like loving the whole wide world! Then again, it brings remembrance to assholes and bitches and makes me feel like wishing they were dead. If only everyone was like ME! TEEHEESZX*

One of my favorite sentence is:
Remember to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

So true. I always give people hugs! I love hugs, *hugs*. There's this exchange of mutual love and care and it feels so comfy. Hmmm~

Another quote from Pon and Zi is," Teddies don't hug back, but sometimes they are all you got."

Bleah. I don't need a boyfriend. I need a best friend.
